Congratulations to these two recently-formed pastel societies, and hooray for an expanding arts community.
ASPAS—Pintores Pastelistas Españoles (Pastel Society of Spain) formed in late 2007, held its first exhibition in March 2009 (view some of the gorgeous paintings in videos here and here) and, in February 2010, became a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies. Find ASPAS online at www.aspas-pastel.es.
In the United States, the Pastel Society of Eastern Florida (formed in 2009) holds monthly meetings and community events to celebrate the medium. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the group.
