Peterborough, NH – The Pastel Society of New Hampshire’s Eighth Annual Members’ Exhibition continues through April 26 at the Sharon Arts Center Gallery, 30 Grove Street, Peterborough, NH.
Dedicated to the appreciation of soft pastels as a fine art medium, the Pastel Society of New Hampshire hosts a juried exhibition and a members’ show each year. Workshops of varying duration with pastel artists of national renown are offered with membership meetings scheduled four times per year that typically include a brief business meeting followed by a program of critiques, demonstrations, paint-outs and guest speakers leading discussions of art-related topics. The Pastel Society of New Hampshire is a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS), linking their members with the world of other pastel societies and their members.
“Founded in January 2006 by a group of pastel artists, the purpose of our society is to foster connections among pastelists of all levels throughout New Hampshire, the New England region and other states. All pastel artists are welcome and encouraged to join.” For more information, visit http://www.pastelsocietynh.com.
