Welcome to the PSA Annual Exhibition for 2020!
We are a group of artists dedicated to the beauty of pastels - that's our speciality. We conduct workshops, hold exhibitions, social functions and an environment within which we can all advance our mastery of this amazing medium.
Soft pastels are a fine art medium that are pure pigment in a stick form. They are noted for their luminosity, versatility and ability to maintain their colour, yes even through the centuries. It was a favoured medium by the French impressionists and was used extensively in the 17th century by many renown artists particularly Rosalba Carriera (wikipedia) As an art medium they lend themselves to a variety of techniques, limited only by creativity but always endow the artworks with vibrancy if desired. The soft pastels enable the artist to create whatever mood or impact they wish to convey . We have a variety of genres depicted in some fabulous paintings. So please enjoy this years exhibition.
