The Pastel Society of North Carolina would like to host a Statewide Exhibition sometime in the next 2 – 3 years. Since this fall, Patricia Savage, with the representatives of our sister organizations, has been working on how to coordinate our different groups and establishing and writing up guidelines.
We have a list of prospective places to show and have started submitting work to find a venue. Along with the opening reception we would also like to run one or two workshops and possibly also have a day filled with presentations and mini-workshops. This is still in the planning stage, so there’s no guarantee we will be able to do a day of presentations. We know that one workshop is doable.
We want this event to help educate the general public about pastels and to promote our groups. We also want this to be a time where we can get to know other members in our societies and provide an opportunity to learn more about pastels and to learn from each other about how we work.
In order to make this work, though, we will need volunteers from our group to help her out!
Main committees will help with:
- establishing and maintaining a budget
- selecting and hosting a juror
- planning a workshop
- publicizing our event.
Please let Patricia know if you would like to help organize this exciting event!
