Art & Light Gallery is thrilled to partner with The Anchorage Restaurant to present a quarterly installment of exhibitions that introduce new bodies of work from select gallery roster artists and established guest artists. Fondant, a collaborative exhibition by local artists Teresa Roche and Liz Rundorff Smith, will be featured in the Spring 2024 installment of The Anchorage Restaurant series beginning April 9 - July 13.

For the Fondant exhibition, the artists set out to make a special series of artwork that combined Rundorff Smith’s layering of encaustic wax, pigmented pastel powders and geometric forms with Roche’s organic floral motifs, detailed line work and fluid abstraction. The sumptuous nature of the encaustic medium combined with the delicate color of pastel powder and hardened, glassy surface of the final layered pieces reminded the artists of the experience of viewing desserts through the glass displays of a bakery or patisserie. With Fondant the artists capture the irresistible allure of eye-candy while finding meaning in the process of creating the labor intensive work.

The Fondant exhibition will be released on the Art & Light Gallery website and in The Anchorage Restaurant on Tuesday, April 9 and will conclude on July 13, 2024. The exhibition is on view during regular dining hours at The Anchorage. Join the artists for a ticketed artist meet and greet and artist talk on Thursday, May 23 from 5:00-6:30 PM (EST) to learn more about the artists and the inspiration behind the collection. During the event, a signature cocktail will be served along with small bites, making for the perfect culmination of fine art and fine food. Visit Anchorage Tickets to purchase tickets for the event.
