‘The Art Of Monique Motiff’

Art media can sometimes trip you up. I could call Monique Motiff’s medium encaustic, but I think I would be wrong. She uses oil paint, tar and beeswax to create her landscapes. The resulting multi-layered paintings of tree tops and sky are moody, slightly abstracted and ask viewers to wonder how they were created. The Gallery at Art Sanctuary is open by appointment only, except for an opening reception on Sept. 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. — Jo Anne Triplett

Through Sept. 30
