Paintings at Swallowfield



MOUNT DESERT — Maine artist Dietlind Vander Schaaf will be showing her encaustic paintings—also know as hot wax painting— at Swallowfield in Northeast Harbor from July 12 to 25, with an opening reception with the artist on Thursday, July 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Vander Schaaf holds a master’s degree in fine arts from the University of San Francisco and a master’s from the University of Southern Maine. Her work has been described in Artscope as the transformation of “disparate objects into elegantly simple compositions of pattern and grace.”

She has exhibited nationally and was featured in Maine Home + Design magazine’s 2016 profile “One to Watch” on standout artists in Maine. Vander Schaaf has received grants from the Maine Arts Commission, a Tending Space Artist Fellowship from the Hemera Foundation, and the Juror’s Award in association with the 10th International Encaustic Conference. She currently serves as the president of New England Wax.
