The reception is open to all. Hope to see you there!

It will be a nice afternoon. In addition to the 50 beautiful pastel paintings, there will be refreshments, a show catalog for sale, a raffle of a print of the best of show last year with money going to the scholarship fund, the winner of the scholarship for this year, Isabel Simpson and one of her paintings and much more. It is a chance to meet the artists and get to know more about the Austin Pastel Society.

These photos aren't great (sorry and I took the paintings at an angle to avoid the glare) as the lights weren't on but it gives you a slight idea of the show. There are these two walls full and a back wall with 6 large paintings as well.

The long Corridor of Art.
