WOW! National Show of Encaustic Work

WOW! Women & Wax will feature the leading artists in the field who are dedicated to the innovation of contemporary art and ideas. Artists from around the country were chosen for their innovative and contemporary use of the Encaustic medium. The exhibit provides a platform for dialogue and education, while increasing the understanding and appreciation of encaustic art.

Encaustic is one of the oldest forms of painting wherein beeswax, resin and pigment are layered and then fused to produce a luminous surface that both captures and transforms light. These artists melt, layer, scrape, and sculpt to create their individual vision in wax.
