Maggie Price, president of the International Association for Pastel Societies (IAPS), informs me that results of the 2009 IAPS Web Show have been posted on the IAPS web site. Check out all the accepted entries as well as the award-winning pastels by Joan Dromey, Ray Hassard (whose pastel, In Light of India, left, took second place), Vianna Szabo, Lyn Diefenbach, Melanie Watrous, and Susan Grinels.
Maggie also had news about plans for next year’s 15th juried exhibition, which will be shown at the beautiful Brea Gallery in the city of Brea, Calif., to be on view from January 23 to March 5, 2010. “This is an exceptional venue for our exhibition,” she says, “and we are quite excited about the opportunity.” Learn more about the gallery here, and download the prospectus from the IAPS web site.
Keep in mind that acceptance into an IAPS juried exhibition gives you a point toward IAPS Master Circle status. Award winners receive a second point. New recipients of Master Circle status are presetned with gold medallions at the IAPS biennial conventions. Maybe IAPS 2011 is the convention where you’ll get yours?!
