This fall Radio Gallery is in the field speaking with Minnesota artists in their own spaces, at shows, galleries and in their own studios. This week we’ll be speaking with Julian D. Gee. Although Gee is a retired scientist, he will be speaking with us from a very different type of lab, his art studio. From here, Gee works with encaustic wax; a process of layering hot wax over photographs, creating a dreamlike effect. Tune in to hear Gee tell us about his work.
Listen all fall to hear artists from beginners to professionals in their own spaces. Funding provided by The Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
