Open Studio: Encaustic Painting with John Webster

encaustic

On Thursday, January 19th at 6:30 p.m., join us at the Malden Public Library for Open Studio, an artist demonstration featuring Malden artist John Webster.  Mr. Webster will discuss and demonstrate the technique of encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used.

John A. Webster, a Malden artist, is a 1980 graduate of Boston State College – now known as UMass Boston.  His art mentors include Robert DiGiovanni and Eva Cincotta.  John is a former member of the Rockport Art Association, Malden Guild of Artists and past Chairman of the Malden Cultural Council.

Mr. Webster’s work, including photographs and paintings, has been shown throughout New England and has won countless awards.  His artwork has been displayed at the Massachusetts State House, Stoneham Art Gallery, Rockport Art Association Contributing Member’s Exhibit, Malden Guild of Artists Exhibits, Saugus Rotary Exhibit, the Charlestown Preservation Society, The Malden Public Library and many other venues.  He is the recipient of The American Legion Citation of Appreciation Award (2000), George Washington Freedom Foundation at Valley Forge Community Award (2000) and the Malden Elks Citizen of the Year award (2007).

Mr. Webster is well known for his exhibit, “The Other Side of the Wall”, photographs reflecting his time in Vietnam, where he served in the Third Security Police Squadron of the United States Air Force from 1967-1968.  Mr. Webster’s current work features photographs of historic sites of Boston and a selection of his abstract paintings.  He currently is in retirement and is dedicating his time to art and photography.
