Wednesday

Conference Event Schedule

Three days of Conference schedule are listed below. We've got a fabulous keynote, 3 panels, 33 demos or talks, a Hotel Fair, Book Signing, Postcard Show, Conference Wrapup, and a fabulous Vendor Room. A new feature this year is Mix Masters, at least one event each hour in which our presenters approach encaustic with a variety of materials--fiber, graphite, textile tools, metals and more. There are plenty of demos on printmaking (including solar plate!), talks to engender conceptual thinking, and numerous presentations on professional practices. .

Of course we'll have a juried show. The theme is yet to be announced but we can proudly tell you who our juror is: Dan Addington, owner of Addington Gallery in Chicago's River North gallery district. Dan is also a longtime painter in encaustic. The exhibition and much more about Dan will be on a separate post, coming soon. Event descriptions and presenter bios are coming, also in separate posts.

Registration will start in at the end of October. Meanwhile, take a look at what we have planned for you. Click schedule pages below to enlarge for legibility--and to print them out if you wish.
