TPS (Tryon Painters and Sculptures) member Verlie Murphy of Saluda was accepted into the 38th annual Artists Guild of Spartanburg regional competition. The work that was accepted, titled “Recycled Lace” is a 9”x12” cold wax and oils piece.
The opening reception for the competition exhibit was held on Sept. 17 at the Carolina Gallery located on Main Street in Spartanburg, S.C.
In addition, two of Murphy’s encaustic (hotwax) works will be published in an artists’ magazine in Rome, Italy, this December; 10,000 copies of the publication will be distributed.
Murphy is currently a part of a collaboration of artists around the world who are exploring a new product called Aqwax, which will be manufactured through a company in Spain. Aqwax is a water-soluble wax that can be applied with a brush or a knife.
When this study is completed two of her works will be chosen by the company to promote Aqwax.
