New England Wax is an organization of professional artists based in the New England states of the United States. All N.E.W. artists utilize the medium of encaustic (the use of beeswax mixed with tree resin and/or pigments) in their art. Members meet regularly to organize group exhibitions and to share their knowledge with each other. This blog is a collaboration by N.E.W. members about the world of art and the influence it has on their work.
