Portrait of Covid-19 by Jory Mason

This year, PPSCC is breaking with the tradition of providing an onsite artist demonstration during the close of the FPO exhibit in July.  Because the coronavirus is on our minds now, we feel that now is the time to share artist Jory Mason’s demo video “Portrait of Covid-19”. Watch this inspiring video portraying Jory’s reaction to the pandemic impacting all of our lives.

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.
