2017-2018 Member Directory Cover Competition
Each year the Tucson Pastel Society published a directory for our members. It lists all of our members as of September of that season with our program and plein air schedule. We hold a contest each year for the cover photo. The selected photo will remain for the season and the artist will also receive one year's free membership.
Photos of art entries are displayed at the May meeting and the winner is selected by members present. Please submit one photo of your art to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 12, 2017 to be entered into the contest.
In addition to our Member Directory Competition, we present a DVD for the program. This year the DVD will be Susan Haywood-Sullivan's Painting Realistic Landscapes in Pastel: Mixing Greens.
Annual Membership Competition
So many beautiful paintings were submitted this year, it was very difficult to vote for just one. Here are the winners. Congratulations to you all!
