Jane Allen Nodine, Professor of Art and Director of the Harley Gallery was awarded a sabbatical for spring 2011 to research and develop new work using encaustic techniques in art. In February, Nodine traveled to Cerrillios, Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico where she explored the varied western landscape, visited numerous galleries and museums, and participated in a wax resist workshop under the direction of Maine artist Kim Bernard.

Since returning from New Mexico Jane presented a gallery talk and an exhibition of twenty encaustic works from the “trace” series at Coastal Carolina University’s Rebecca Randall Bryan Gallery during the month of March, and since then she has been in the studio developing a new series body of work titled the “ Venetian Series.”

Dean Dirk Schlingmann of Arts and Sciences, along with his wife Catherine and visiting German artist Bodo Berheide visited Jane’s studio in April to see the work in progress. McDunn Gallery in Greenville, S.C. featured a solo exhibition of Jane’s recent work from May 5 through June 11. A reception was held May 20.

In early June, Jane traveled to Provincetown, Mass. to attend the 6th National Encaustic Conference and participated in demonstrations and workshops.
