All Pre- and Post-Conference events will take place at Castle Hill. If you're in a workshop, you'll have time to finish up before the event, and if you're coming especially for a talk, you'll be able to spend some time viewing the two exhibitions on the Castle Hill campus.

. Thursday, June 5: Opening receptions for the Conference Juried Show, Subliminal, juried by Dan Addington, and a Conference Curatorial Project, Material Consequences, curated by Susan Lasch Krevitt and Nancy Natale, will take place at Castle Hill, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

. Monday, June 9:  Discussion, The Affinities Between Fiber and Wax, with Conference presenters fluent in both mediums: Cat Crotchett, Jennie Frederick, Lorraine Glessner, and Susan Lasch Krevitt, with Marci Rae McDade, editor in chief of Surface Design Journal

. Tuesday, June 10: A talk by Material Consequences curators, who will be joined by exhibiting artists Jeff Hirst and Lisa Zukowski and perhaps others, 5:00 sharp to 6:00.

. Wednesday, June 11: Artists' Open Mic hosted by Wayne Montecalvo
Says Wayne: "This discussion will be a chance to explore different ways the creative impulse moves through artists by sharing what we do outside of the realm of encaustic painting. In the spirit of an Open Mic, where performers and poets test their work on a live audience, I am inviting artists who have other creative endeavors to give a short presentation on things they have a passion for. I fall into this category myself as I work with songwriting, video, and music making, and I will be the first presenter to kick things off. Time slots will be broken down into a 5 minute presentation and a five minute audience Q&A. The format could include digital still images, audio samples, and /or video presentation. The only requirement is that the “passion” not include encaustic paint. This is intended to be a fun, non judgmental forum for sharing our creative work in other mediums and disciplines. Due to time constraints and so many other post-con happenings, this event will be limited to six presenters on a first come first serve basis. 
"If interested please contact, Wayne Montecalvo at;, and write the phrase “Artists Open Mic” in the subject line."

. Thursday, June 12: Closings for Subliminal and Material Consequences, 4:00 to 6:00. Weather permitting we'll relax on the back deck

The evening events are free to all conferees and their significant others, whether or not you're enrolled in the workshops.
