Artists of the International Encaustic Artists (IEA) pair up with artists of New England Wax (NEW) to create collaborative works in encaustic.  Each artist in the pairings created one half of a two panel painting or “diptych” and then completed the dialogue as the work was then sent to the partner artist to create the other half.
