Sorrel Sky Gallery is proud to be the new venue for the 26th National Pastel Painting Exhibition of the Pastel Society of New Mexico. Opening reception is from 5:00-7:30 pm on March 2, 2018, at the gallery’s downtown location, at 125 W Palace Ave. The exhibition continues daily throughout the month of March.
Pastel Society of New Mexico (PSNM) has held a national juried exhibition annually since 1991, attracting artists from across the United States, Canada, and Europe. PSNM has been at the forefront of establishing an annual pastel painting exhibition since 1989 when a small group of artists began promoting both knowledge of, and appreciation for, the soft pastel medium. Now considered to be among the most prestigious shows in the country, this event yearly draws upwards of 150 artists, each submitting up to 3 pieces of artwork completed during the past 24 months. Jurors select an average of 140-145 pieces depending on scoring. This year, Dinah Worman will be judging the final pieces chosen by three nationally recognized artists serving as jurors: Susan Ogilvie, Jeanne Rosier Smith, and Frederick Somers. Subject matter is not restricted and often includes portraits, landscapes, skyscapes, street and cityscapes, still lifes and more.
