Elena De La Ville's encaustic panels operate beyond objective reasoning. They reach us at a visceral level; free from intellectualization.

This group exhibition features 20 artists from across the US, selected from a group of 61 entries by Nick Capasso, Senior Curator at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, Mass. Capasso selected the theme Beauty and Its Opposites to challenge participants to go beyond the beauty of the wax. DIRECTOR'S PRIZE: Elena de la Ville
