Gallery | Pastel 100 Jurors Showcase

This year’s Pastel 100 competition jurors (Margaret Dyer, Dawn Emerson, Cecily Kahn, Richard McKinley and Peter Seltzer) have just over 150 years of experience in art-making, inspiration and creativity among them, so they know a thing or two about painting. Each has an appreciation for good design, the mastery of color and an exquisite handling of edges.

Read more about each of these five artists and their experiences as competition jurors in the April 2012 issue of Pastel Journal, and enjoy an online-exclusive gallery of their works below.
