Gay Schempp started her artistic life as a studio potter creating functional and sculptural stoneware. Recently, she has been exploring encaustic painting using a variety of media to compose visual stories. Using a painterly approach, she combines drawings, found images, photographs and textured papers to express her life-long fascination with mythology, symbols and the cultures of ancient civilizations.
Schempp has exhibited nationally and led craft and mythology tours to Japan and Greece. She taught for 20 years at New Canaan High School where she was awarded “Teacher of the Year” by the Connecticut Art Education Association.
“Migration” will open November 22 and run through December.
