the Encaustic Art Institute

Exterior Encaustic Art Institute


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

You can e-mail Douglas Mehrens at for any information on how to volunteer, become a member, or donate to the organization.

Gallery Hours noon – 5 weekends, April through October; otherwise by appointment.
