Shannon Troxler hosts art show


The Pinedale Fine Arts

Council will present an exhibit/lecture and

reception for Jackson artist Shannon Troxler

on Friday, March 29, at 7 p.m. in the Pinedale

Library, Lovatt Room, 155 S. Tyler Ave.

This event is free to the public and wine

and appetizers will be served.

Troxler will present a body of work created

in encaustics, which involves using

heated beeswax to which colored pigments

are added. The liquid or paste is then applied

to a surface – usually prepared wood.

Troxler is a graduate of the Schuler

School of Fine Arts and the Art Student’s

League where she learned a deep appreciation

for the craft of classical art while grinding

pigments and making her own charcoal.

These days she continues to explore new

mediums and methods in her studio in Wilson.

Her latest passion involves molten wax,

a blow torch, and the encaustic medium. Her

work has been featured by the Leigh Yawkey

Woodson Art Museum, Birds in Art exhibit,

The National Museum of Wildlife Art, The

Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibit, and Arts for

the Parks. Her work is in the permanent collection

of the Wyoming State Museum.

According to her website, Troxler’s work

explores the natural world people encounter

and how humans relate to it through myth,

poetry and literature. She is fascinated by the

intersection of the visual world and the written

word and how closely they are entwined.

She is continually exploring and experimenting

with new mediums that challenge and excite

her.

Additionally, Troxler will also spend a

week in residence with Pinedale High School

art students March 25-29. The residency will

focus on the Encaustic painting.

The March 29 evening reception will feature

Troxler presenting a slide show lecture

accompanied by a small exhibit of her work

as well as completed works by Pinedale

High School students during her week-inresidency.

Troxlers’s reception and residency are

presented by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council

with support from Sublette BOCES,

Wyoming Arts Council and Sublette County

School District No. 1.
