It suddenly occurred to me on this long Labor Day week-end, that I had not posted anything about the upcoming IEA ( International Encaustic Artists) as well as the juried exhibition that will be held in San Antonio, starting September 6-9. This conference has grown from a small retreat out on the west coast for the IEA group to a large gathering of painters/artists who work with encaustic paint.

During the conference, members will be able to network, attend lectures, workshops and demonstrations about art and especially the art that includes encaustic wax.

The juried exhibit this year,EncaustiCon 2012, will be held starting Sept 7, 6-8:30 pm at Gallery Nord, 2009 Northwest Military Highway, San Antonio, TX. The exhibit will feature 67 works from 47 artists. The juror was Paula Berg Owen, President and CEO of Southwest School of Art. I hope to see you there. If you cannot attend, the exhibit will remain up through September 29, 2012.

Oh yeah……… and while looking at all these wonderful works, I will be standing by my accepted painting, The Green Heart of Italy.
