Susan Calloway: Caroline Adams Egg Tempera
July 26th, 2014 at 10:00 AM | firstname.lastname@example.org | Tel: 202 965 4601 | Event Website
Mix egg yolk with powdered pigment and you have egg tempera, a painting medium that has been used for over 1,000 years. A successful Kickstarter campaign provided the funding for Washington artist Caroline Adams's project to make 50 paintings in egg tempera. Combining 21st century crowdsourcing with ancient techniques is a natural path for the classically-minded artist.
An artist reception will be held Friday, August 15 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Susan Calloway Fine Arts; 1643 Wisconsin Ave NW
