We are proud to introduce the Encaustic Art Institute, a permanent gallery for all encaustic artists. Established as a non-profit 501c3, we rely solely on membership fees, donations and grants. 70% of every sale of artwork goes to the artist. The Purposes of the Institute are to:

  • Exhibit the work of member encaustic artists.
  • Promote public awareness and understanding of the encaustic medium.
  • Offer space and programs for professional encaustic artists to exchange information about encaustic and techniques for working with wax.
  • Offer educational workshops for people of all ages interested in learning how to create art with encaustic.
