I'm taking a workshop with Sally Strand next week in Cape Cod and have just received my regular newsletter from her - and discovered the following!
After the workshop at Cape Cod, I will be traveling to New York City to attend the Pastel Society of America 34th Annual Exhibition www.pastelsocietyofamerica.org at the National Arts Club.I've included links below to both the Pastel Society of America's exhibition webpage and that of the National Arts Club below and I'm now off to study Amtrak timetables and fares to see if I can fit this in as well!
My painting, Citrus, Fallen Leaves and Kumquats won the Jack Richeson Award at the PSA exhibition! I look forward to being there to receive the award in person and catching up with many of you from around the country that I haven’t seen in some time.
The 34th Annual Open Exhibition is being held at the Nationa; Arts Club from 8th September until 1st October. It showcases approximately 200 pastel paintings that have been selected from over 1300 entries which come from all over the world. It attracts the best of artists and shows the many styles possible with the use of pastels.
The National Arts Club is located at 15 Gramercy Park South (20th Street) between Park and Irving Place, on the southwest corner of Gramercy Park. The club recommends that those coming by Subway should take the 6 train to 23rd Street and walk south on Park Ave. Make a left on 20th Street, and walk half a block.
