New Farmington HIlls City Hall gallery exhibit opens

TectonicDetroit-area artist Candace Law’s artwork is showcased in the Rotating Exhibit Gallery at Farmington Hills City Hall, 31555 W. 11 Mile Rd., through October 14.

After receiving degrees and working in other fields, Law earned a BFA in Architectural Illustration, but found herself drawn to fine art. Her current body of work focuses on encaustic (hot wax) and mixed media, especially incorporating found objects.

“Art for me is a means of communicating about our environment and our lives,” Law said in a press release. “It’s a way of sharing our experiences.”

Law’s work has been exhibited in solo shows, regional and national exhibitions, and is included in private collections including Detroit’s Historic Trinity Church. Her work has also appeared in Encaustic Arts and Studio Visit magazines. Law also teaches encaustic workshops at her studio in Berkley.

An artist talk and a demonstration of Law’s work will be held sometime during the exhibit, which was made possible through a grant from the Farmington/Farmington Hills Foundation for Youth and Families.

The City of Farmington Hills is accepting submissions for the 2017-2018 Public Art Program. For more information, contact Staci Hayman, Cultural Arts Programmer, at 248-473- 1870 or
