Terrie Corbett has a passion for a unique medium called encaustic – paint produced by combining pigment with hot wax. This ages-old technique although somewhat difficult to control is becoming more popular today. It lends itself to luminous color that create vibrant masterpieces like those included in the exhibition Beyond the Familiar on display in the Munroe Family Community Gallery.

Corbett refers to her approach to painting with encaustic as “improvisational expressive and intuitive. . . a visual jazz if you will. I feel that my paintings range from exuberant enthusiasm to quiet reflection.” Her compositions are sometimes filled with fluid tranquil organic forms and sometimes create dynamic energy using geometric shapes. Her art offers viewers the opportunity to explore up-close the symphony of colors and unique textures produced by Corbett’s skillful knowledge of working with paint produced with cold and hot wax. This exhibition includes many paintings from her Color of Music series.

Corbett has received countless awards and solo exhibition opportunities for her work including the first-place prize for an encaustic painting the 32nd Art in Gadsden: Regional Exhibition of Fine Art in 2020. Image: Terrie Corbett Singing From the Windows 2019 oil and wax 12 x 16 inches.
