“Reflections in Batik” Exhibition by Natalie Guess
October 5 - December 30, 2016
1051 Fifth Ave. S., Naples, FL 34102
Natalie Guess is a Naples artist specializing in the rare art form of batik. Originating in ancient Egypt, batik or “wax writing”, involves the painting of hot clear wax on silk or cotton them immersing in vats of dye, one color at a time, layering the effect until a painting is formed. Once wax is ironed out between stacks of paper, the true colors show. Guess is one of the few fine art batik artists in the United States and has worked in this medium for over 30 years. The free opening reception will be open to the public and held on Thursday, October 6th from 5-7pm. For more information, please call (239) 262-6525.
