What have you been doing during quarantine? 

Dorothy E. Barta


It is with great sadness that we announce that PSSW founder Dorothy Barta has passed away. Dorothy was a gifted artist, an inspiring teacher and was passionate about pastel. She was a frequent attendee at the Portrait Society of America convention each year. When a young daughter was accepted to the New York City Ballet, she accompanied her and attended the New York Students league. It was at that time that she connected with Flora B. Giffuni of Pastel Society of America and decided we needed a pastel society in Dallas. That dedication and tireless energy established our organization and supplied knowledge and support long after she handed over the leadership to others. In later years, her creativity was channeled into her writing.
She leaves a loving and extended family. More about Dorothy may be found at Dignity Memorial:
