This October, Columbia Art Gallery will partner with the Northwest Pastel Society to host its 2012 Members' Show.
The Northwest Pastel Society (NPS) started in 1988 as a nonprofit dedicated to promoting pastel as a fine art medium. Every year, NPS hosts a members-only show, highlighting work created by members in the past year.
This year, juror Dawn Emerson selected over 40 artists to participate in the show.
As an added bonus, Emerson will be giving a demonstration of pastel painting on First Friday, Oct. 5, from 5 to 6 p.m.
Winners of this year's competition will be announced immediately following the demonstration at 6.
"It's an exciting new partnership with NPS," said Columbia Center for the Arts Gallery Manager Caroline Mead. "The quality of work is excellent, and this is the first time we've featured a pastel-only show. It'll be wonderful to see so many up in the Gallery."
