We’re ecstatic about encaustic! ARTsmart would like to introduce you to two local encaustic painters who have a booth in the upcoming Art Santa Fe Contemporary Art Show. Jim Gautier and Richard Nicholas are both retired and prefer to spend their time on photography and encaustic painting and teaching their techniques at the Encaustic Art Institute so they’ve invited us to be a part of the show. ARTsmart will staff the booth, make the sales, and let people know all about ARTsmart at the same time. They have offered 100% of the sales to benefit ARTsmart so please join us and meet these generous artists at Art Santa Fe!
