The Pastel Society of Virginia will have an exhibit "Seen in Virginia" at the Cultural Arts Center of Glen Allen in the Gumenick Family and Slant Wall Galleries. Judge Colin Ferguson will award cash prizes in this members only exhibit. The exhibit will be installed May 15 through July 13, with the opening reception on May 18 from 2-4pm. It is being managed by the society's Central Virginia chapter.
As a landscape and plein air artist, Virginia is one of my very favorite topics!
In addition to "Poppies on Black" as seen on the postcard (note: which received an Honorable Mention!), "Vision in Blue" and "Great Falls Toward River Bend" are of my pieces available in the show.
