Permanent Collection

The Permanent Collection was started to archive an eclectic variety of styles and techniques in encaustic/wax art, in order to further promote the medium. It is EAI’s goal to propose an all-encaustic show to national and local museums, using our permanent collection. The ball has started to roll, however it takes time to open doors to museums and other venues. In the meantime, the Permanent Collection can be viewed in the EAI gallery, now in its’ expanded “Permanent Collection” space.

For those of you who haven’t donated, but would like to be part of this venture, let us know. If you have any questions, please contact
