Morro Bay Art Association is proud to host International Encaustic Artists with a very special exhibition, ConVergence – Wax on the Water!

Convergence is the act of separate entities coming together to create something new; a unified whole. In biology it speaks to parallel evolutionary patterns where similar traits spontaneously appear across unrelated species, and the same phenomenon can happen across societies as well. Convergence happens when knowledge and methods from varied disciplines and cultures come together to spur new thought and innovation.

In a tumultuous era when we can feel divided from one another physically, emotionally, culturally, and politically, the idea of convergence represents hope. What can we do to create bridges; to reach out and pull together rather than push apart? Artists explore the concept of Convergence in an international exhibition of encaustic and cold wax, juried by Los Angeles based mixed media artist Pamela Smith Hudson.

This juried event is a collective of exceptional encaustic and 3 dimensional artworks, featuring some of the finest contemporary artists in the world. Whether you are attending this extraordinary exhibit to observe or to purchase, you’re in for a delight! 


These events are free and open to the public.
