UNC Asheville in Asheville, NC, Offers Works by Marsha Balbier
UNC Asheville's Blowers Gallery in Asheville, NC, will present the exhibit, The Essence of Asheville, featuring works by local artist Marsha Balbier, on view Jan. 5 - 30, 2011. The exhibition includes works in fused and shaped glass as well as encaustic paintings, which are created using heated beeswax. The encaustic technique dates back to ancient Egypt, when it was used to create mummy portraits.
Balbier's work is featured in the permanent collection of the Banff School of Fine Arts at the University of Alberta. She has studied fine arts and design in various schools, including the Banff School of Fine Arts, the University of Northern Colorado, Endicott College and the Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science.
