What is the Pastel Society and what does it do?

The Society was formed in 1983 to cater to the needs of pastel artists of all levels of ability and to promote the medium to the public at large.

The Society hosts one exhibition each year to offer artwork for sale by members and regularly invites experienced pastel artists to demonstrate their skills to members.

New Members are always welcome.

The Pastel Society meets every Monday evening (except holidays) 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the Mildenhall Centre, Beddi Road, Duncraig.

February 2017 Newsletter

Message from the President

Welcome back to another year of pastelling.

It has been great to see such a good number of members at the first few weeks of our year. We have already had some new members enrolling and annual subscriptions are being paid promptly,

Last year we maintained a healthy membership of just over 130 and it has been fantastic to see many of our south of the river members attending demonstrations and contributing to the exhibition

As you will note from the Newsletter we have two demonstrations booked in March and May, our AGM will be in April and the Unframed Mother’s day sale extended to run over three days in May

Hopefully you are all thinking about paintings for the unframed sale and our Annual Exhibition later in the year Many thanks to all the committee members who willingly give their time to plan and organise these events and contribute to the smooth running of our society Happy Painting!
