Featuring the work of 24 Midwest artists working in the ancient medium of encaustic--paint and beeswax. 

 

Encaustic is an ancient method of creating art using pigmented wax fused to a surface by heat, which is then enhanced with paint. The technique dates to the ancient Greeks who used wax to seal ship hulls and pigmented teh wax to decorate warships.

 

Join us to view the work of 24 artists working in encaustic that have taken this antique medium into the 21st century, expanding upon tradition and pushing the boundaries of the medium to creating contemporary work.

 

The event and the exhibition are free and open to the public.

 

SHCA hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM, and Thursday, 10 AM to 7 PM.
