Civan Oz. – photographer. Civan is a freelance photographer based in Washington, D.C. In 2001, when he started college in Turkey, he discovered his passion for the camera at the UFAT photography club. He has shown his pictures in various solo and group exhibitions.
Connie Fleres – sculptor & painter. Encaustic painting was notably used in the Fayum mummy portraits from Egypt around 100-300 CE. The churches in the 6th Century had icons which were painted in encaustic. My work is about reflection and surface. Working in encaustic lends a shimmery, reflective quality that I am interested in. I also feel a connection to the sculptural quality of wax that you get working in encaustic.
