4th Annual NC Statewide Juried Pastel Exhibition, May 16 – June 16, 2015

3900 West Market Street, Greensboro, NC

The Statewide reception on May 16 was beautiful and was attended by a large crowd of around 300 people.  To see the brochure, photos, video, award winners, press and more — click here.

The Pastel Society of North Carolina, the Appalachian Pastel Society and the Piedmont Pastel Society collaborate each year to form an annual statewide exhibition, “Pastel Paintings From the Mountains to the Sea.” Members of at least one of these pastel organizations were invited to enter, even if they did not reside in North Carolina. This year the exhibition is being hosted by the Pastel Society of North Carolina.

A general step-by-step guide for preparation of digital images (pdf)

PSNC Photo Depot

All of us have trouble finding good reference photos from time to time, so we have decided to build a repository of copyright-free images donated by our members. Anyone who wishes to participate may bring as many 5x7 or 8x10 color prints of any photo they wish to release permission to use to our monthly meetings. There will be no cost to use the photos and therefore no compensation to the photographer. By sharing in this way, we can all become better artists. We hope you'll contribute to this resource!
