15h Annual "Renaissance in Pastel" National Juried Exhibition

The sun is shining today! I’ve just received word via the USPS, that my pastel entitled “Winter’s Glow (Lynn Woods)” has been juried into the 15th Annual “Renaissance in Pastel” National Exhibition sponsored by the Connecticut Pastel Society. As the number in the title would indicate, this is one of the longest running and I might add, most prestigious exhibitions for the pastel medium. It annually attracts the top artists working in pastel. I’ve been fortunate to participate in this show on several occasions and have also won numerous awards during my tenure, including the top of honor of “Best in Show” and I was one of two judges of awards for the 8th exhibition.

As it was last year, this year’s exhibition will be hosted by the West Hartford Art League, at 37 Buena Vista Road in West Hartford, Connecticut. This is a gem of a gallery set on lovely ground not far from downtown Hartford.

The exhibition opens on October 2, 2008 and runs through the 26th of that same month. An artists’ reception is scheduled for October 12th, from 2 – 4 PM. I hope that your travels will find you stopping in for a peek at what is sure to be top flight art exhibit.

Thanks for listening, and see you out “Painting the Soul of America”
