Niza Knoll Gallery, 915 Santa Fe Drive, Denver

Niza Knoll Gallery in Denver, Colorado, is pleased to invite artists who incorporate encaustic in their art making, to submit their work for a juried exhibit; Wax Stories 2. This is the second biennial exhibition of Wax Stories. We loved the fascinating stories and marvelous art we got in the first regional exhibit in 2015. We were encouraged, by many of you, to do it again, and to do it nationally. We found that artists love their wax. Please submit your best pieces and tell us your stories.

The exhibition will open November 3, 2017 and run through the holiday season until January 6, 2018. It is a great time to get your art shown in Denver’s fabulous Art District on Santa Fe. Submissions will be juried by a blind juried method.

The Wax Stories exhibition will be juried by Patricia Aaron, an award winning contemporary abstract painter. Aaron’s work has evolved to draw direct inspiration from her travels through the culture, language and customs of the environment and habitat in which she resides as an artist resident. Aaron has held artist residency fellowships in France, Iceland, Hawaii, Virginia, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming.

Awards will be given to Best of Show, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Best of Show, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be honored with a four week group exhibition, Best Stories, at the Niza Knoll Gallery in Denver in 2018.

The Festival introduces the public to new technology molded by artists into vehicles for expression and the communication of ideas, broadening the definition of 21st century art making and fostering a more expansive use of technology.
