IEA visits the EAI

IEA's convention EnCosticon in full swing in Santa Fe, New Mexico - is welcomed to the Encaustic Art Institutes Gallery. Two buses and 90 artists were in attendance to view the National Juried Exhbition put on by EAI as well as the EAI Permanent Collection in the front half of the gallery.

Tour of the EAI

A Planned tour of 20+ people from Albuquerque landed at EAI Saturday the 19th. Members Sherry Ikeda and John Schaefer were on hand to demonstrate mono-printing and basic set-up of encaustic wax prep on board. The National Juried Exhibition is still showing through November 4th. EAINM.com

Patricia Aaron's Upcoming Show

URBAN ABSTRACT-RURAL GRID. Patricia Aaron & Chandler Romeo. November 9, 2013 - March 8, 2014. MOA, Englewood City Center, Englewood, CO. Location: Indoor Galleries. On November 9th, 2013 MOA will open its newest exhibition, URBAN ABSTRACT – RURAL GRID, featuring the works of local artists Chandler Romeo and Patricia Aaron. Both artists have produced new original work for this exhibition in response to the 2013 MOA theme of “abstract”. Patricia Aaron utilizes the encaustic, or “hot wax painting”, process to create monotypes, sculptures, and large-scale paintings. Aaron will contribute more than a dozen mixed media pieces to this exhibition; she is represented by Space Gallery in Denver. Chandler Romeo’s sculpture is inspired by what she refers to as “vernacular earthworks”, the geometric shapes and patterns imposed on the Earth to organize cities and identify boundaries. Her ceramic earthworks explore the relationship we have with our environment – from our natural surroundings to the most urban cityscapes. Together Aaron and Romeo will create a vibrant atmosphere that explores the intersection of people and landscape. The opening reception for URBAN ABSTRACT – RURAL GRID will be November 9th, 2013 from 5 pm – 9 pm at MOA’s indoor gallery on the 2nd floor of the Englewood Civic Center. URBAN ABSTRACT – RURAL GRID will be on exhibit through March 8th, 2014. For more information please visit the MOA website at www.moaonline.org or call (303) 806-0444.

5th Annual Gala a Huge Success

The EAI doubled our funds from last year and everything went smoothly. The weather cooperated until the very last, as we moved the live auction inside. The storm that ensured was record-breaking, so we lucked out. The Sunday Afternoon was a departure from the Saturday evening we had done before, and it was a hit. Sherry Ikeda did monotype demonstrations, and we had a wonderful poetry reading by Stuart Hall. The raffle and live auction items this year were fantastic and pulled a lot of players into the fun. We sold more paintings this year, than in years past through the silent and live auction. The following artist paintings sold: Louise Cassleman, Harriette Tsosie – 2 paintings, Evelyne Boren, Ellen Auchter, Kate Palmo, Barbara Michener, Sherry Ikeda, John Schaeffer, Marilyn Peretti, Fionna Buck, Cherry Whitener Rohe, Jennifer Pretzeus, Anne Smidt, Angel Wynn, Russell Thurston.

Thanks to everyone who donated paintings, and gifts to raffle. Thanks to the Gala team: Nancy Gott, Sherry Ikeda, Fionna Buck and Adrienne Mehrens. Their efforts in organizing and cooking and helping with set-up and clean-up and everything else in between are appreciated beyond measure. Thanks to Body and Soul Jazz Trio for volunteering to play for the festivities year after year. And thanks to all the friends and family of local members who also volunteered to make this the most successful Gala yet. The funds from the Gala will help continue to improve marketing of EAI, and help to expand our mission of exposing encaustic/wax medium to the public. Thanks to Richard Crombie for being designated photographer for the Gala and supplying the photos for the slideshow above. Click on image to Stop Slideshow.

Harriette Tsosie's Code Talking Series

CODE TALKING: Word & Symbol as Image. From “Morse” to “QR,” Albuquerque artist Harriette Tsosie explores all kinds of codes in her upcoming solo show “Code Talking: Word and Symbol as Image.” The exhibition opens at Old Town’s Leich Lathrop Gallery Friday, October 4th, with receptions during the First Friday Artscrawl (5:00 - 7:00 PM) and an artist’s reception Sunday, October 6th from 3:00 - 5:00 PM. The gallery is located in Plazuela Sombra, 323 Romero Street, Suite #1, Albuquerque. “This body of work explores the language aspect of identity,” says Tsosie. “From marks scratched on caves to contemporary texting, there has always been a mysterious element to communication.” “Technology has made private communication more accessible and faster. That comes at a price. There's a reason divorce attorneys mine Facebook." She points out that social media can be a weapon as well as a “friend.” “The so-called 'social media' offer ample opportunity for government spying, leaking secrets and making serious mistakes. While many use the internet for shopping, other cultures form revolutions with it." Some contemporary codes are visually quite beautiful, says Tsosie, who especially likes the QR (quick response) codes. “A Los Angeles artist has likened them to Navajo rug weavings,” she says. “However, my first love remains the calligraphic marking of earlier cultures, which seem like codes to me since I cannot decipher them.” She explores both the QR and bar codes in several works as well as calligraphy in her “Lost in Translation” pieces. “Code Talking” continues through October 30th. Leich Lathrop Gallery hours are: Monday & Wednesday - Saturday: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Sunday: Noon - 5:00 PM. The gallery is closed on Tuesdays.

Call For Raffle Items

Call for Raffle Items for the "5th Annual Afternoon Gala and Art Auction"

Dear Members, We are gathering raffle/auction items for our yearly Gala event, September 15th. EAI relies heavily on this one event for funds to make all aspects of the Institute grow and function. The raffle items cost $5 a ticket. In addition, the auction segment will be part silent and live for paintings, as well as bigger ticket items that are being donated. The beauty of participating is you need not be present to win. Some of these items are localized and it would mean a visit for you to NM....but some are items that can be shipped to you, or a service you can take advantage of anywhere. A few samples of what we have so far are gift certificates for encaustic materials, one-year EAI membership, jewelry, encaustic books, one-day workshop with member Sherry Ikeda, etc. The other items we have are gift certificates for NM local things such as dining, spa certificate, B & B weekend in Taos, hot air balloon ride, jazz quartet playing at a gathering of your choice, etc. In years past we have had members donate items such as a hand-inlaid knife, a week's stay in Mexico at a time-share, etc. Use your imagination - you can donate your services, or something of value that you think would be interesting to EAI members and their friends and families. We will be getting a Raffle flyer out in a couple of weeks for people to pre-pay for their raffle tickets. We will be able to put your paid tickets in the raffle drawing boxes, as well as have you represented at the live/silent auction. The upcoming email will tell you more specifically how it works. I appreciate you considering anything you might want to donate. All donations are tax deductible. Any questions or donation ideas, please contact me at: Mehrens@eainm.com Please let us know soon.

Sincerely, Douglas Mehrens Founder/CEO - Encaustic Art Institute

EAI's New Website

Dear Members: We are launching a new website for EAI, check it out: www.eainm.com. The site has a new look, added content, and tablet and phone compatibility. There are aspects that you, as a member should review. They are listed below, in addition to pages on the website you may want to explore. As always, please contact us if you have questions. You can use the Contact tab to email Douglas Mehrens.

Information to take note of: Membership/Renewal- We have streamlined the procedure for renewing your membership. Click on the Membership/Renewal tab in the menu at the top of the website then click on the Become a Member page from the drop-down menu. Click the renewal link, fill in the form and submit your payment. Membership information- This page on the dropdown menu will give you general information about your membership. It is intended primarily for new members to find out more about how their membership works. Even if you are a long-time member please check it out as there may be things you weren't aware of. Listing of EAI Members- This page lists the names and states of current EAI members. If you are a current member and your name is not on this list, please email Kari Gorden (karigorden@yahoo.com) so that we can update the list. There is a note on this page that will point to the listings on the EAI blog with members' names and websites. This note is also on the Purchase Art tab for potential buyers to be directed to your website, so please, if you have a website be sure your information has been sent to Linda Fillhardt (fillhardt@lindafillhardt.com) for the EAI Blog. Membership Event Calendar- This page has a full calendar of events for your reference, including deadlines and calls for art dates, please add these dates and deadlines to your personal calendar. Exhibition Calendar- This calendar only lists the schedule for Exhibitions. Refer to the Membership Event Calendar for deadlines and detailed information. Send us your Art- General information about Shipping your art. Please also see the sub-pages under this page for more detailed information regarding shipping and handling of your art. Additional information regarding shipping and framing- This page is a sub-page under the SEND US YOUR ART page. It has useful tips about shipping and handling your artwork as well as information about framing encaustic art. Calls for Art- We email you current calls for art as the deadlines come up, but if you have misplaced or deleted the email, you can check under the Membership tab to find copies of the current Calls for Art. Label text for Exhibits- This is an extra blank label for you to copy and paste, then print out and attach to the back of the piece you are shipping or delivering to EAI. Please print your info clearly and fill in the form completely. Be sure to note at the top of the label what show you are submitting the piece for -- or if the piece is for rotation. (We keep up to two member pieces on hand to hang. At least one piece of art from every member will be on display except during the Juried Show and the Gala Show). Remember that with all the current members' work we have, and new pieces coming in for themed shows and rotation, it can be very confusing if you have not attached a label to the back of your piece. You may be in a rush or not feel like taking the extra step -- but not only is it a hassle for us, it can definitely present problems for you as well. For example, a buyer comes in and asks about a piece in a show they saw a few months ago that they couldn't buy at the time, it's not hanging -- is it still available; or you leave a piece in rotation and then one year later you want it shipped back to you. If the painting is not labeled, it does not get recorded in the storage vault for future access. Both of these examples have come up in the past -- you could lose a sale or your piece may not be easily returned to you -- so please take care and responsibility for your art, take the extra step and attach your label securely to the back of your piece. Library- Click on this page to view the EAI Library and books that we have for members to check out from the Institute. If you have any questions, please contact me, Mehrens@eainm.com.

Sincerely, Douglas Mehrens Encaustic Art Institute/Founder

Ellen Koment: Summer Workshops

More About Encaustic: Going a Little Larger July 12-15, 2013 The workshop will be an introduction, if you haven't done encaustic before, or you need a refresher on basic techniques, For more advanced encaustic painters, it will be an opportunity to enhance your work with a variety of new techniques. Individual instruction and criticism will help you move your encaustic painting to a new level. Beyond Beginning: Going Large August 12-16, 2013 Five Days: This is my most advanced workshop, and a unique opportunity for artists who are already working in encaustic to experience the joy of seeing there work on a larger scale, or to attempt any other expansion of their vision which they might like to pursue. We will address the special design and technical considerations involved in working on a larger scale, from sketch to finishing. Participants may work up to 36" x 36" on their own panels, but may choose to stay in the 24"x 24" range. For more details: http://www.nmencausticworkshops.com
