The 13th International Encaustic Conference 

The International Encaustic Conference will take place Friday, May 31 through Sunday, June 2 in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Produced by Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, the conference offers an opportunity to connect with other artists, as well as gallerists, curators, collectors, and more. Jam-packed with talks on subjects ranging from the environmental politics of wax to materials, method and process, and demos on casting, encaustic monoprints, and alternative surfaces, the International Encaustic Conference is not to be missed. The vendor room is packed with must-have materials for you to take home and the hotel fair Sunday morning offers you a chance to build your collection. 

Bookending the conference are pre- and post-conference workshops led by instructors from across the country. There is still space in several workshops. To learn more about any of these workshops or to register, visit
