EAI/IEA JURIED EXHIBITION

In conjunction with EXPO 2018, EAI and IEA are collaborating for the second time in holding a retreat for their members, click HERE for more info on the FLUX: Encaustic Retreat. In addition, EAI and IEA are jointly sponsoring a Juried Exhibition: Melting Pot/Melting Point, which will be held in Santa Fe, NM during the retreat and will be shown at the EAI Gallery.

Gallery Exhibition: 

Saturday, September 29th

through Sunday, October 21st

Opening Exhibition Reception: 

Friday, September 28th   5-8 pm

The exhibition, on the theme of “Melting Pot/Melting Point”,  is a metaphorical reference to the American ideal of a society becoming more homogeneous, with different elements fusing harmoniously together, to create one common culture. The Melting Pot also represents the encaustic technique, as heating the material to the Melting Point is an essential step in creation. This exhibition will be a coming together of many points of view, with the result being a true expression of our differences, yet a celebration of living and working together. Juror Francisco Benitez has made his selections, and we are pleased to announce the winning artists for this exhibition:

Theme Exhibition: "Global Warming is REAL"

Global Warming Is Real. Something that has been on the top of our minds for quite some time. As scientific reports and photos document the changes in our earth's atmosphere, we become sensitized to how global warming impacts us now and in the future. In this juried exhibition, artists from across the country working in encaustic/wax entered work to be selected based on their creative interpretation of the theme.

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 1, 10 -5 pm

The opening July 1st was a huge success. Many exhibiting artists were present for the opening, locally and from out of state. The juror, Garrett Smith attended and was generous with his time and attention to artists. He was impressed by the exhibition and said it is always interesting to look at the juried pieces up close and personal, versus on a computer.

We had two sales that day, one from the exhibition – Kate Snow with her piece Encaustic Iceberg 004. Kate’s piece was also selected by the Albuquerque Journal North  to be featured with their wonderful article in the Friday paper. And one from the member’s side of the gallery, Lauri Borer.

From noon to 2:30, Catherine Trapani demonstrated cold wax and oil technique. She pulled a good sized audience and kept them captivated. Catherine offers a workshop at the Encaustic Art Institute the remainder of the summer and next fall.

We also ran an ad in THE Magazine and one in the Pasa Tiempo section of the Friday New Mexican. Click here to see ad. The exhibition was picked up by media with our calendar listings and museum openings, as well as the Tourism group. Credit goes to EAI member Deanna Kovacs and her husband John, who volunteered to help with an extensive effort in Media saturation for this show. They also spent time to update our media contacts and organize everything in Excel format.

To see the full listing of exhibiting artists in this show and photos from the opening, please go to the Encaustic Art Institute's website. The exhibition continues through August 20th.

Exhibition runs from July 1 - August 20
