This month, Columbia Art Gallery is partnering with the Northwest Pastel Society to host its 2012 Members’ Show.
The Northwest Pastel Society started in 1988 as a nonprofit dedicated to promoting pastel as a fine art medium. Every year, NPS hosts a members-only show, highlighting work created by members in the past year.
This year, juror Dawn Emerson selected more than 40 artists to participate in the show.
“It’s an exciting new partnership with NPS,” said Columbia Center for the Arts Gallery Manager Caroline Mead. “The quality of work is excellent, and this is the first time we’ve featured a pastel-only show. It’ll be wonderful to see so many up in the Gallery.”
Artists include Nora Lacie Abell, Cathy Arneson, Gladys Balcon, Vicki Brink, Rosemarie Caffarelli, Debra Cepeda, Laurie Crawford, Carol DeGregory, Mary Denning, Nathalie Equall, Jeannie Fine, Michael Fisher, Caroline Garland, James Geddes, Alta Godwin, Bonnie Griffith, Trish Harding, Deborah Henderson, Eileen Holzman, Amanda Houston, Gary Huber, Tricia Kaman, Joan Kinsman, Anne Knapp, Christine Knowles;
