WAXWORKS: An International Call for Works Made of, Using, or About Wax

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Call for Entries for a Juried Exhibition

Wax’s capacity to mimic the sheen, surface, and luminosity of living flesh lends its use to the uncanny. The texture of wax rests on the knife edge between attractive and repulsive; the surface of wax is inviting, but if you touch it for too long you will start feel it soften under the low heat of your hands. That same softness, the ability to be warmed and shaped allows it to become a sketch material, a molding material, something easily shaped or carved.

Wax gives an idea form, and then it is sacrificed, lost, inside the very mold it shapes, burned out and flooded with liquid bronze, silver. An alchemic transformation. It is one of the oldest painting mediums, with its own quality of light, its distinctive smell.

WAXWORKS is open to encaustic painting, sculpture, lost-wax processes, or any other media involving or depicting wax.


$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.

Includes exhibitor honorarium of $50 for each exhibiting artist, and new Grand Jury Award of $1,000 for one jury-selected work from among the exhibits on view.
