The Coastal Carolina Pastel Painters are a branch of the Pastel Society of North Carolina and was formed in 2020 by local artists from the NC Coastal area. “Our membership runs the gamut from beginners to signature PSA members. This group exhibition presents a selection of works by established and emerging artists who share a passion for using the pastel medium as a means of artistic expression,” stated member Carol Yaquinto.
About theArtWorksTM, which includes an Art Village with 50+ working studios, as an international art destination, provides a creative environment for artists, educational opportunities, and enhances the community through art. The 7K square feet gallery gives artists a place to show their work, the community an opportunity to admire and purchase fine art, and a venue to host private events. Also available to artists and the community are meeting rooms and a classroom.

“Oils and Pastels by Chapel Hill artist, Elaine Jerome”
Elaine Jerome has been painting most of her adult life. The subject matter reflects her extensive travel throughout the United State and Europe. She is especially drawn to seascapes having spent her childhood summers by the Connecticut shore and later on Fire Island, NY and on the islands of Kea and Lesvos in Greece.
In addition to being an artist, Elaine is a registered nurse and holds degrees in sociology, psychology, and community health. In World War II she served in the army nurse cadet corps. Elaine is the founder of the teen support coalition and the youth community project in Chapel Hill/Carrboro.
