APS Spring Show

The Austin Pastel Society is having a non-juried spring online show.

Members Non-Juried Spring 2021 Exhibition (virtual) will be held in mid-April through mid-June. Paintings can be viewed in the comfort of one’s home, as often as desired!

Important New Dates:

Exhibit Dates: Tuesday, April 20—Monday, June 21, 2021
Judging completion: Friday, April 23
Notice to Award winners: Friday evening, April 23
People’s Choice Award: one day of voting on Saturday, April 24 till 11:59 pm (TX DST)
Awards Ceremony: Sunday, April 25 at 2:00 pm

Exhibit Platform:


I have 3 pieces in the show.  You can see them under the Established Artists section and read about me in the About Artists section.  View all the art and if you want and have time you can return on April 24 to vote for your favorite painting.

Viewing art online takes some imagination as the images are all the same size regardless of how large the painting is.  You can view the pieces in a room as a choice on the website on individual art images.

9-E Splendor, pastel,  14 x 11 inches, painted plein air at the 9-E ranch near Bastrop.

Wind Not Needed, pastel, 12 x 9 inches, painted from my photos and memories.

Group hug, pastel, 12 x 9 inches, painted in my studio from Gene's apples.  We did eat the models!

The online show has a variety of styles, artists and sizes.  I think you will find the work beautiful and interesting.  Maybe you will find one to buy.  I haven't decided on my favorite to vote on for Saturday.

Good luck Jo, ...

I sure like the windmill

Jo Castillo said...

René, thanks so much. You know I like your windmills, too. I think they are historic.

Jo your paintings are so gorgeous and vibrant. Love how you captured both landscapes as well as making those apples mouthwatering. Wishing you a very successful exhibit. Hugs!

Jennifer Rose said...

good luck with the show!

Jo Castillo said...

Hi, Debbie. Thank you. Went out twice this week with someone other than family and hope that inspires new paintings.

Jennifer Rose, thank you so much. Hope your art room is back in shape, soon.

All three of these paintings are winners. I love the apples best, though.

Jennifer Rose said...

the room is almost finished yay! lol

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, thank you so much. I like to paint red and it is always fun to eat the models!

Jennifer Rose, it will be super for you to have a new and comfortable space to work. Your digital painting is fun and the videos, too. You draw so well.... sigh.
