Self Portrait, Morning (15×21) by Melanie Peter
Winner of the 5th Annual APOW Contest
This week’s artist website of the week represents a collective of artists: Associated Pastelists on the Web (APOW). Directed by PSA master pastelist Madlyn-Ann C. Woolwich, who I had the distinct pleasure of meeting earlier this year at IAPS, the site is a hub of pastel activity. Visitors can apply for membership, recieve written critiques of their work, read interesting and informative articles on the pastel medium, and see heaps of paintings from artists such as Wende Caporale, Anne Heywood, and regular PJ contributor Margot Schulzke. Spend an afternoon there. You so won’t regret it.
