The Columbus Museum, 1251 Wynnton Road, has an exhibit of something unusual: encaustic paintings. These paintings are done by Betsy Eby, and were done from 2007-12. An encaustic work involves layering heated beeswax and colored pigments using knives, brushes and a blow torch. The colored wax is then put on a surface like canvas or wood. Admission to the museum is free. It’s open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday and Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Thursday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Call 706-748-2562.
