KATERINA CAPETANOS

Original Artwork

As an artist and botanical enthusiast I have been influenced by both the natural world and the fantastical, especially the Voynich Manuscript, a mysterious, undeciphered manuscript dating to the 15th or 16th century. Using encaustic and mixed media I try to evoke the memory of a familiar and recognizable natural form while staying on the periphery of the identifiable. My botanical paintings are created using unconventional tools, blowtorches, air compressors and blades. There is rarely an actual brush stroke visible. The colored forms bloom on the encaustic surface and my job is to capture them in wax.

MILL VALLEY FALL ARTS FESTIVAL

Sebtember 17th and 18th, 2022

Art, Nature, & Community

Once a year the community gathers under the redwood trees to celebrate art and the beauty that surrounds us.

Strolling through Old Mill Park among old growth redwoods we see art forms and visions we have never seen before. Our eyes and ears open to new art and ideas at every turn of the Festival - from the story tellers and puppeteers, to the main stage acts, to face painting, to the fine arts and crafts themselves.

Although the art comes from near and far, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival offers a warm, local, non-commercial experience and welcomes all ages and people.
