The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department is pleased to announce that works by members of the Pastel Society of South Carolina (PSSC) will be on display at Park Circle Gallery from November 3-25, 2020. The annual judged exhibition is free and open to the public.
Pastel Passion! will feature 30 dry pastel works with a variety of subjects by PSSC members. Ribbons for first place, second place, third place, and honorable mentions will be awarded by guest judge, artist Christopher Groves. Groves’ paintings hang in numerous private and corporate collections and he is the recipient of multiple awards and recognitions. He is a member of Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society, and the American Society of Marine Artists, and is currently represented by Horton Hayes Gallery.
PSSC is a not-for-profit organization whose objectives are to promote public awareness of the pastel as a fine art medium, to provide educational programs for its members and other interested parties and opportunities for them to exhibit their work, and to unite pastel artists in order to bring about recognition of their work.
