Encaustic Art Institute

This light-filled adobe space, which opened to the public in late 2017, is dedicated to encaustic art. Encaustic, which means "to burn or heat" in Greek, is the result of mixing colored pigments into heated beeswax and resin before applying to a surface with a brush or tool. Because the wax has body, it can be sculpted into shapes as well as painted and layered onto a canvas. The nonprofit gallery has over 300 encaustic works on display, most of which are for sale (70 percent of each sale goes directly to the artist).
