Artist Nicole Bauberger  was at the Grande Prairie Regional College for an artist residency with the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie. She created 100 paintings of dresses in 10 days. They are painted in encaustic, a form of painting with melted beeswax and pigment, fused to a surface with heat. The public was invited to watch her brush, layer, scrape, carve, and sometimes embed found objects in the wax to make one hundred small paintings of dresses.  Visitors were also invited to make a dress painting of their own.
