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:
The Exhibit chairman and members are hard at work onteh 39th National Pastel Exhibit.
We would like to thank the members of the committee for their help thus far. We could not do it without you.
Jeannie Davis, Dawn Secord, Marian hirsch, Pam Smith, Linda Smith, Janis Krendick, Sherry Barber, Marie Maines, and Wendy Koehrsen.
