The PSC 2021 Member Show, "Staying Connected"
August 4, 2021 to August 27, 2021
Western Colorado Center for the Arts, 1803 North 7th Street, Grand Junction, CO 81501
"Staying Connected"
Staying Connected is the theme for the PSC 2021 Member Show. When we paint we form a connection with our subject, whether it is a landscape, cityscape, group of favorite objects in a still life, model for a portrait or figure study or colors, forms and textures in an abstract. We then hope to share this connection with our viewers: family, friends, acquaintances and people we've not yet met. This show is not juried. Each artist submitting work will have their work in the show, within reason.

Awards Judge: Mike Ray
Colorado artist, Mike Ray, will be the judge for the PSC 2021 Member Show. Mike is a
Master Signature Member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and an Associate Member of the Pastel Society of America.
According to Mike, "a painter's journey is never over". He says he can no longer remember a beginning and sees no end to his journey. It is a journey of seeing and then painting how he feels about what he sees. He is a product of the West.
Generations of ranchers, farmers, miners and loggers have shaped his passion for the western outdoors. He paints because it takes him to those places he loves. His quest is to share that love of painting contemporary Western America one painting at a time.
Mike is a local and national award winning artist with a degree in Fine Arts from Regis University. he is also a member of the Plein Air Artists of Colorado PAAC and a member of the American Impressionist Society of America.

  • Our On-Site Show Judge and Online Juror - Deborah Bays
    My medium of choice is pastel and my style is informed by my years as a theater artist and the chiaroscuro tradition of the Dutch Masters. My work has been featured in art publications and I exhibit paintings in galleries nationwide. I have been awarded Master Pastelist status by the Pastel Society of America. It is with great pleasure that I have returned to the Art Students League of Denver to teach classical drawing and painting. Please visit her website at
