Spring 2018 Update

It’s the middle of May and PAC is heading into a very busy time.  On May 10th our 27th Annual “Purely Pastel” open juried exhibition opened at the Aurora Cultural Centre in Aurora, Ontario.  After careful consideration, 70 fantastic pastel paintings were selected by our juror, Robin Nyikos from artists across this great country.  The show runs for 3 months until August 4, 2018. 

Our opening reception is all set for May 26 from 1-4pm.  This will be a great opportunity to meet the artists in attendance.  Unfortunately, I cannot make it to the opening, but Heather Laws and Robin Nyikos will be presenting the awards in my absence.  Also, remember to bring a little extra moola – our ever popular Silent Auction will also be taking place.  Kim Martin has been busy lining up great merchandise for you to bid on.  If you are in the area be sure to check it out. 

ICAN 2018 will also be kicking off on Monday May 28th with a week long opportunity for artists to attend workshops and demos.  We’ll also have some free plenary sessions throughout the week as well as a paint-a-long and a vendor on site for those pastel supplies you forgot at home.  There are still spots left so be sure to check out the schedule and sign up ASAP. 

And stay tuned.  We have some things in the works that will be announced soon!  Enjoy the warm weather and have a great summer!
