The Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod’s (PPSCC) annual member exhibition celebrates the work of our talented and accomplished community of pastel artists from across the country. This non-juried show will once again be online only and is a wonderful opportunity for all members to showcase their best work on the PPSCC website.

All sales are commission-free. Artists have the option of making their paintings available for sale and will receive 100% of the proceeds. And because the show is online, you will also save on framing, shipping, and travel

Our Mission

To create a community of pastel artists, to set standards of excellence through education and to encourage and nurture artists in their professional growth. Further, we strive to educate the public and gallery owners of the permanence, versatility and value of the medium and to offer opportunities for our members to participate in juried shows and exhibitions devoted to pastels. We hope to establish pastel as a separate category in art exhibitions.
