Perspective is technically the art of drawing or painting on a plane or curved surface the spatial relation of objects as they might appear to the eye. But more importantly, it also represents the artist's point of view and how they see things in the world they inhabit. This show will display the wide-ranging perspectives artists have no matter where they are in their pastel art journey. Submission for the show is not juried and is open to all current PSC members.SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:

The Pastel Society of Colorado is pleased to present the show's awards judge, Chuck Ceraso.
All awards are made at the discretion of our judge. All awards will be final with no exchanges or substitutions.ABOUT CHUCK CERASO:
Chuck Ceraso studied painting and sculpting at the University of Notre Dame and painting with Henry Hensche, the well-known painter and teacher of the Cape School in Provincetown, MA. Hensche taught for over 60 years until his death in 1991.
Chuck has been a sought after instructor at the Denver Art Museum, the Art Students League of Denver and the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities for many years. He also holds ongoing classes in his gallery and studio in Lafayette, CO. His work can be found in public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.
I have been fascinated with painting from the actual experience of sight as opposed to painting from a set of rules or theories as taught by many artists. Using the principles of seeing that I learned from Henry, I continue to discover a fresh vision of the world as simply an arrangement of colored shapes. Science has verified that color vision is a much more complex and fascinating phenomenon than any theory or formula can ever predict.
Painting can be about much more than making pictures. It can be a means of seeing the world and ourselves with new eyes. It can be a process of endless revelation for both the artist and the viewer. -- Chuck Cerasowww.cerasogallery.comPROSPECTUS: https://pastelsocietyofcolorado.org/pdfs/2022_members_show_prospectus.pdfENTRY FEE:
