Purely Pastel 31st Annual Open Juried Exhibition

May 31 to June 18, 2022

Location: Parkview, Emergence and Founders Galleries

Presented by: Pastel Artists.CA

Reception: Sunday, June 5, 2022, 2 pm – 4 pm

Join us in celebrating the wonderful medium of pastels.

Pastel Artists.CA presents works from artists across Canada, and internationally, working in pastels. Pastels are the world’s oldest medium, dating back to the caves in Lascaux. Modern advancements in the manufacture of pastels, along with museum quality paper supports, means that pastel paintings created by today’s artists will last for centuries to come. And yes, they are paintings!

This exhibition is exclusive to works created in pastel. From landscapes to still life, portraits to abstract, our members create beautiful work in different styles. From bold strokes to the faintest whisper of pastel, artists can express themselves in any manner that soothes their souls and communicates their vision. There are no limits with pastels.

View the works in this exhibition and you can confirm that for yourself.
