The Fitchburg State University CenterStage arts and culture series presents “Chroma,” a gallery exhibit by New England Wax, through March 3 in the Hammond Hall Art Gallery, 160 Pearl St.

New England Wax is a lively and growing professional organization connecting artists in the six New England states who work with encaustic and other wax-based mediums. 

The works in “Chroma” use color pigments that are suspended in either encaustic or cold waxes. The exhibition, on display during the depths of a New England winter, is intended to provide a colorful oasis for students and visitors alike.
