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.

Show Ends: Friday, October 7, 2022
Artwork Pick-up: Saturday, October 8 and Monday, October 10, 10:30am - 3:00pm

Do you find yourself caught up with the detail in your paintings? Do you wish for a bolder impact from across the room?

Let's work hard and have some fun doing it!

Desmond O'Hagan Workshop
November 19, 2022 to November 20, 2022
The Experimental Pastel--Landscapes, Figurative, etc. with Desmond O'Hagan

"This 2-day workshop explores experimentation in the process of painting. A primary goal is to have each participant step out of their comfort zone to pursue alternative ideas, methods and techniques. An essential element of painting is personal artistic growth, and experimentation is crucial. We will explore expressionism and abstract art and how to incorporate elements of both in representational pastels. My teaching method is customized to each participant's needs and includes daily lectures and demos."
