TexasWAX Artists Show Their Stuff

TexasWAX artists from Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio are exhibiting new Encaustic works at Gallery M Squared during the month of May. The reception is Saturday, May 9 from 7-9 p.m. This is the first joint exhibition of all four groups.
About TexasWAX:
TexasWAX Houston was the first group to organize in November of 2007. The Dallas group followed shortly after. In February of 2008, these two groups held an exhibition in Dallas that coincided with the College Art Association Conference held there.

The Austin wax group formed not long after. San Antonio artists who were driving to Austin for meetings decided to form a chapter of their own so by the end of 2008, TexasWAX had expanded to four chapters.

Each chapter is active with its own projects and exhibitions, sometimes in collaboration with a sister chapter. This is the first collaborative project of all four chapters.

Gallery M Squared is located at 325 W. 19th Street in Houston Heights.
Gallery hours are Wed - Sat 10-6, Sunday 12-5.


  1. I look forward to, “degrees” a group exhibition bringing together encaustic artists from Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Each city group make up the larger texasWAX network and members from one group are encouraged to submit works for or attend functions presented by any other group within the system. Fantastic artists from four of Texas’ most incredible cities, “It can’t get much hotter, can it?” The mercury is rising with anticipation of this event. Slip into something cool because “degrees” turns up the heat and shows Texans “the power of art.”

  2. Congrats to All. I hope your show goes well!

  3. "Hi:

    Two things

    1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on ‘Charlie Rose’for our website

    2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

    The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]
    ‘Charlie Rose’one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

    What’s in it for you?
    Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.
