Near & Far encaustic exhibition

OPEN CALL for encaustic artworks:

As we begin the one-year countdown to the inaugural Canadian Encaustic Conference, we invite artists from all over the world — from places both Near & Far — to submit encaustic artworks to this Online Exhibition.

The theme “Near & Far” inspires a range of interpretations, from physical and geographical distances to the human experience of connection and separation. Whether your work reflects the intimacy of close connections or the expansiveness of distant horizons, we want to see how you represent these concepts in your art.

We welcome your participation whether or not you plan to attend the Conference.

As the exhibition is online, you do not need to ship works and there is no size restriction. Works can be available for sale or marked NFS (not for sale).

We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not meet the professional standards of the Canadian Encaustic Conference. Please ensure that your images are properly cropped and of good quality, otherwise your entry may not be accepted.

Non-Refundable Submission fees:
Collected fees will be used for pre-conference expenses such as venue and catering deposits as well as awards and scholarships.

By submitting this form, you grant the Canadian Encaustic Conference permission to use your submission material, without compensation, in any social media posting and catalogue publication of this exhibition.
