From our juror of selection–
It is a great honor to select works for the PPS Members show. I have enjoyed lingering over each painting and I revisited each piece multiple times during the decision process. To assist these decisions, I applied the same general guidelines I use to assess my own work: composition, technical merit and emotional content.
I extend my heartfelt congratulations to all the artists who entered this show. It takes courage and I applaud each and every one of you. This show will be a beautiful example of the diversity and power of the pastel medium.

This stunning array of extraordinary soft pastel paintings is now on display at the Henry Gallery in Malvern, Pennsylvania. Awards were announced at our 2024 Members Exhibition Reception on January 17, 2024. Our judge of awards, Anne Singer PSA, IAPS/MC, MPS honored nine worthy paintings and offered these comments

Congratulations to our new
Philadelphia Pastel Society Signature members.
Enjoy some of their recent works here.
