Explorations in Luminosity is a group exhibition of encaustic artworks by artists whose art is being exhibited for the first time in Houston. The encaustic process, painting using pigment infused hot wax, is one of the oldest known forms of painting. This wax process technique was notably used in the Fayum mummy portraits from Egypt around 100–300 AD.
