One of Pastel Artists.CA’s mandates it to promote our members work through exhibition participation. PAC strives to host an open juried exhibition, “Purely Pastel” every year. These gallery exhibitions alternate between Western and Eastern Canada on a yearly basis. The exhibitions are juried by well known national and international pastel artists to ensure the accepted entries are of the highest standards.
PAC also holds an annual member juried online exhibition. This exhibition is open to all PAC members and provides an opportunity to participate in exhibitions without the expense of shipping works across Canada. This exhibition gains in popularity each year and continues to grow every year.
2022 May – 31st Annual Purely Pastel Exhibition features the work of many artists from Canada and internationally.
