"The Art of Nature, And All That Is Natural"

Opening Saturday, July 19th, noon to 5 PM

Encaustic Art Institute 18 County Road 55 A, Cerrillos, NM 87010

Entries:    Encaustic Art Institute members are invited to submit one piece of work. The theme of this show is "The Art of Nature, and all that is Natural". We want this subject for you to be exploratory. The subject can be the actual portrayal of nature, but by no means is limited to that. The work can also include the 3D affect of nature, or the abstract interpretation of what is "natural" to you. We'd like this show to be individually interpretative, inspiring new work from your studios. 
No entry fee required.
