Many of our members attended our January 5 virtual members meeting via Zoom. We enjoyed a wonderful presentation given by Nancie King Mertz, a talented and nationally known pastelist. Her rendering of a complex Chicago scene taught us much about how to approach architectural drawings and paintings. You can check out Nancie’s website and her upcoming workshops for even more inspiration.

Plein Air 2021

We celebrated the end of another successful Pleir Air season at the East Goshen Community Park on Saturday, October 9. A local musical group, the 29ers, entertained while everyone gathered to admire the summer’s paintings and enjoy delicious box lunches prepared by Kathy and Pat. Once the soccer games in the nearby fields were finished visitors came by to admire our work and help us celebrate. 11 PPS artists participated in the show.
PPS members who displayed their work under the Veteran’s Pavillion were Anne Whalon, Patricia Riley, Kathy Apfelbaum, Blanche Levitt Torphy, Suzanne Burns, Mary Rinderle Smith, Marie Harris, Betsy MIraglia, Paulette Staley, Roe Murray, Judith Kornfield.

Congratulations to the artists who won our People’s Choice awards. Check our PPS News page for more more information, photos of this day, and news of our previous plein air outings
