OUR SAZWAX GROUP, Southern Arizona Chapter of IEA (International Encaustic Artists), meets from 6:00-9:00 pm every third Tuesday of the month, in a member’s home. We enjoy a potluck meal from 6:00 to 6:30, after which we begin our business meeting. On the agenda are topics such as old and new business, and committee reports such as exhibits, workshops, membership, website, etc. Also during our meetings we network about supplies, techniques, opportunities, and members’ activities. Frequently we present short demonstrations or invite a guest speaker.
Another portion of the meeting is devoted to critique or the showing of recently completed works.
All members of SAZWAX must be members of the parent organization IEA at $75/year. There is also a small membership fee for our local group of $20/year to cover administrative expenses. Anyone may attend up to two SAZWAX meetings, before deciding to join IEA and SAZWAX. We are looking for excitement and commitment to share and help artists working in the medium of encaustics continue to thrive and expand their horizons.
