Juror and Awards Judge: DAWN EMERSON
Dawn grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts. After graduating from Brown University with a BA in English/Minor in Art in 1977, she began a career in graphic design and illustration. She became a book designer and art director for an educational publisher in the Boston area, until leaving to head west with her young family and husband in 1985. It was in Salt Lake City she discovered a passion for teaching art to children, and she continued teaching in the public schools after moving to Central Oregon in 1991. In 1992 she discovered the medium of pastel, and began taking workshops with well known pastel artists Sheila Reiman, Harley Brown, Albert Handell, Sally Strand, and others. By 1997 she was winning major awards for her pastel work, writing articles for various art publications, and teaching her own workshops. Dawn has spent the past 26 years creating art, teaching, and experimenting in her Central Oregon studio to push the boundaries of the pastel medium. In 2008 Dawn was introduced to printmaking by mentor Pat Clark. Printmaking led to new and exciting directions for Dawn's art expression and inspired the writing of a book titled "Pastel Innovations" in 2017 by NorthLight Publishers. Three new dvds were also produced by NorthLight, making a total of 6 instructional dvds now available. Dawn's work has been exhibited in many national exhibits, and is available through the Mockingbird Gallery in Bend, OR. Dawn is sought after as an art judge, workshop instructor, and inspiring demonstrator. Her passion is to help people find their own voice with art and to continue to grow as an artist.

Pastel Society of Eastern Canada, International show
November 15, 2019 to November 24, 2019
Montreal, Canada
Deadline for Entries, August 15, 2019

Started in 1995, our society holds two major exhibitions per year, one for members only and one juried show in the fall, international every other year.

This being our international year, we wish to encourage you, our US neighbours, to benefit from the many advantages our Canadian situation has to offer.

  • Each year our show is held in downtown Montreal in a prestigious gallery
  • We exhibit approximately 100 works and give out over 5,000$ worth of awards in cash and prizes
  • To encourage participants from outside the country the year of the international show, one does not need to be a member.
  • The cost of transportation by ground is surprisingly reasonable.
  • The dollar exchange makes all fees about 30% below the US dollar.
  • Montreal is a dynamic, safe and friendly city should you wish to visit, with the French flavour of Europe, but very bilingual. Great restaurants, lots of lodging, from the finest hotels, to Airbnb's. Activities and atmosphere abound.
  • It is always a thrill to exhibit in a foreign country and become an international artist!
  • Our show is coming up November 15-24 and the deadline to submit is August 15.

For participants from outside Canada, there are some differences to the instructions to note:

1) The images of the works must be sent to the email address and the registration form sent to Sylvie St-Georges, as indicated on the information document.

But the registration fee and the 5$ per painting hanging fee must be paid by Paypal to our treasurer, Monique Tatlock, at her email address:

2) Calendar: The acceptance or refusal message will be sent by email, not by regular mail.

3) If accepted, the paintings must arrive by September 30th, at the latest.
