The encaustic method is an ancient painting medium that had become virtually forgotten until noteable artists Diego Rivera and Jasper Johns worked with it in the last century. This exhibit will present a sampling of the unending possibilities of encaustic art and its basic component bees wax, as painting medium, adhesive and sculpting material. Among those exhibiting are some of the most prominent artists working in this medium.
