FUSE will bring 19 Maine encaustic artists together in an exhibition at the Harlow Gallery.



FUSE will introduce the public to the diverse methods and techniques currently employed by contemporary encaustic artists.

Encaustic is a beeswax-based painting medium made of beeswax, pigment and damar resin, has a unique and long history that dates as far back as the 5th century B.C.

“B” by Jason Morgan of Readfield

Ancient Greeks used wax to seal and decorate their warships due to its resistance to water and cold temperatures.

A resurgence of encaustic as an art form in the past two decades can be partly attributed new techniques and invention used with the versatile medium.
