Dusty Fingers Challenge #3:
A Fresh Take on Still Life
The challenge is to break habit of what or how
we approach still life. Are there unusual household objects that would be fun
to work on? Or is there new technique materials or approach you have been meaning to try that might be
interesting for this subject?
As before participating pastel artists will
gather to share and discuss their approaches and vote for the most interesting or outstanding pieces. This time we move to La Mesa!
When and where:
LA MESA WALKABOUT First Wednesday in January
Jan 4 2017, from 4:00 – 6:30
Members of the public are welcome to drop in to
the open meeting see the various pastelists showing their latest still life
We strongly encourage all artists to try this
medium and join the Pastel Society of San Diego.
We strongly encourage collectors to consider
including pastel - this most permanent of all media!

DUSTY FINGERS CHALLENGE #2
From Margaret Larlham PSSD
Double Challenge! Dusty Fingers
Fishbowl and Pop-up Small Images show.
Date: For September 2, 2016, 4 pm
Place: Cue One productions studio
at Liberty Station.
Members are invited to work on PEOPLE
- portraits, figures, groups (unframed or framed) – to show to fellow
pastelists at the 2nd Dusty Fingers Fishbowl Meeting.
The meeting will be held in the
Cue One Studio at NTC Liberty Station. You probably know that the first Friday
of every month is open studio night at Liberty station and all the galleries
are open for people to visit. It would be interesting to have people peeping
into our “fishbowl” sharing of pastel examples.
Besides invigorating our member’s artistry, this open challenge will
be good exposure for the Society and may attract new members as well. (You are
aware of the draw on the WC society and quilt shows - so a few of their
followers might spill our way).
participants may also bring a framed small image piece to display in a pop-up
show in one corner of the studio. A pop up show for the evening might attract
buyers or certainly more exposure for artists!
Please email me to be put on the
list if you wish to participate. I will
update you on the list and further details at the beginning of August (Last
time there was a group of 12 which worked well.)
But in the meantime have a happy summer
working on PEOPLE!
