The City of Santa Fe Community Gallery in collaboration with the Santa Fe Botanical Garden and Ecoversity announces “Pollination- Encaustic Works from New Mexico”. The Community Gallery will feature an exhibition presenting the wonder of encaustic painting as well as educational and inspired programming regarding the history and myriad encaustic techniques available to artists in that media, which relies on bees wax.  Inherent in the subject matter of this exhibit are the numerous environmental impacts of civilization on bee populations and their role in our lives as vital pollinators.   Over 20 artists in encaustic media will offer a full range of work that expresses both the beauty of the materials they use as well as the exacting nature of encaustic work.
