     The call for art nation-wide, asked encaustic/wax artists to delve into the creative process with the idea of "new territory".      The theme encourages artists to work outside of their comfort zone and build on something new, whether it is experimenting with a new technique or even a new style.  Hot and Cold wax are represented in an amazing variety of techniques with one dominant element present - WAX.  Ellen Koment the juror, a local New Mexico artist has worked with this medium for over 20 years and is a recent recipient of the 2018 Gottlieb Foundation Artist Grant.  She narrowed down the entries to 51 artists, which can be viewed in the main gallery of the Museum. ALL WORK IS FOR SALE.
     The opening is Saturday May 25th from noon-4, and is FREE to the public.  Many artists are traveling to the opening, as well as the juror will be there to talk a little bit about the show.  The exhibition runs through July 7th, with the non-profit admission of $10/under 16 Free applicable for the duration of the exhibition.  The Museum also houses a gallery, and a permanent collection of work not for sale.  You will experience the largest collection in the nation of this ancient and beautiful medium - encaustic/wax.        Click here to see the listing of artists who were chosen for this exhibit.
