If you can get to the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, in Summit, before March 19, you will have the great luck of seeing their 24th International Juried Show. Additionally, both upstairs and downstairs are wonderful examples of encaustic-style works.
A friend and I recently visited the center and saw both the show and the encaustic art, and were fascinated.
Also, the center offers loads of workshops and classes for both adults and children. I'm looking forward to taking the encaustic classes and learning more about this unique technique.
