• Emily Reed says this is going to be fun:
Islands Museum of Art (IMA) in Friday Harbor, WA announces the opening reception of “Waxed @ IMA”, an Invitational Encaustic Exhibition on Friday, September 14 from 5-8 pm. Five of the artists in the exhibition are coming from across the country – Massachusetts, Nebraska, Arizona, Oregon and Canada – to be present at the reception. The title refers to painting with melted beeswax. Encaustic means to “burn in” and this medium, practiced by artists in ancient Greece, is experiencing a contemporary Renaissance.
This International Invitational exhibition curated by Miles Conrad of Conrad Wilde Gallery, Tucson, Arizona, features the work of the following 10 artists working in the encaustic medium: Otty Merrill, ME; Sue Katz, MA; Susanne K. Arnold, VA; Margaret Berry, NE; Daniella Woolf, CA; Andrea Benson, OR; Ellen Koment, NM; Eileen P. Goldenberg, CA; Yvonne Buijs-Mancuso, WA; and Shelley Wuitchik, B.C., Canada.
Educational programs will be part of this exhibition:
A Symposium on the Encaustic Medium with Exhibition Artists: Saturday, September 15 (time and place to be announced)
Yvonne Buijs-Mancuso, an exhibition participant, will offer two encaustic workshops in her San Juan Island studio: Saturdays September 22 and 29. Call 378-6725 for space is limited.

This work will be on exhibit from September 14 thru November 9, 2012, at the Islands Museum of Art, 232 A Street in Friday Harbor (just above the ferry lanes).
