More Must-See Pastels

Hammer Galleries in New York present Sheldon Berkowitz: Reflections through January 7. You might be familiar with the artist; his work has appeared twice in The Pastel Journal (most recently, in the August 2005 issue). Berkowitz’s pastels over watercolor on paper are so strikingly realistic, we’d love to be there to see them up close!

    I’ve seen works in pastel that one can hardly distinguish from a photo. This one is magnificent, and what is most impressive is the realistic glass.
    It’s really a world of abstracts contributing to form a realistic painting.

    Kind regards,
