Benefits of membership
As a member you will receive news updates of our organization via email, which lists upcoming PSSW events, art news, member news, etc. You'll also be entitled to a 20% discount on regularly priced items at Asel Art. In addition, you will be eligible to participate in our annual juried show.
Members may sign up for the workshop that we offer each year, which is taught by the juror for our exhibition. In the past, well known artists, such as Bill Hosner, Richard McKinley and Lorenzo Chavez, have generously shared their insights and talent with our members.
We offer a variety of programs at our six meetings held during the year, all designed to further your knowledge and appreciation of the pastel medium. From a critique session, to demonstrations, to viewing the slides from the prestigious Pastel Society of America exhibition -- our meetings are an enjoyable way to learn more about pastel. Camaraderie with like-minded enthusiasts, both amateur and professional, is the special bonus that keeps our organization strong.
As an added bonus, PSSW is a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS). This organization unites pastel groups from around the world and sponsors a popular biennial conference all about pastel. With our participation in this organization, you may enter the juried IAPS-sponsored competitions. Also, you can receive a 20% discount on the regular price of art supplies from Asel Art.
We welcome new members and hope that you will consider joining our group. We look forward to meeting you.
