Ascot Encaustic Art Gallery

More Than Paintings!

Ascot Encaustic Art Gallery has introduced many New Zealand and International visitors to this most ancient of art forms since opening to the public back in 2007.

As a working studio gallery visitors often get the opportunity to see resident artist, Lynn Whitford, at work or at least get a brief demonstration of some of the modern techniques she employs in making her original artworks.

The gallery has a wide range of original encaustic artworks on display and for sale, ranging from small pieces such as handmade cards, bookmarks and boxes, through to framed & unframed paintings from small easily packed items right up to 1.5 metres long.

Always looking at other methods involving encaustic, Lynn has recently started working with some techniques combining fabrics, papers, texture pastes and encaustic to create some very interesting pots and other containers.
