Carol Law Conklin’s batiks are inspired by mythology.

Artist Carol Law Conklin will be showing her myth-inspired batik, ‘Myths from the Wax’ at the Valley Artisan’s Market, 25 East Main Street/Route 372, Cambridge, N.Y. through Tuesday, May 3. Batik is the ancient art of painting on fabric with wax and dyes, the wax acting as a resist to the dye.  “I enjoy the sensuous flow of the wax, which has a will of its own, as it spreads onto the cloth” says Law Conklin. “ The beeswax and paraffin have special line effects and crackling qualities. I am always excited by the magic when I iron the wax from the fabric.” the artist’s batiks have been exhibited in many eastern United States galleries and also sold abroad. Much of her work relates to fantasy, mythology and primordial themes. Valley Artisan Market is free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Call 518-677-2765 to learn more.Artist Carol Law Conklin will be showing her myth-inspired batik, ‘Myths from the Wax’ at the Valley Artisan’s Market, 25 East Main Street/Route 372, Cambridge, N.Y. through Tuesday, May 3.
