The reception for the Southeast Pastel Society 2017 Juried Members Exhibition was last night. This year marks my forth year being with the Southeastern Pastel Society and this is the forth year in a row I have been fortunate enough to be in the art exhibition/competition. Due to this accomplishment I received a Member of Excellence award. To have received this award establishes me as an artist in the community of pastelists. It is such an honor to be among such talented artists.
