For 25 years, the “For Pastels Only on Cape Cod” (FPO) exhibit has celebrated the pastel art form, featuring works by contemporary artists from across the country—and indeed the world. It provides pastel artists a distinguished opportunity to showcase and sell their work.
The show will once again be held at the Cape Cod Cultural Center and open to the public. A record number of visitors are expected to cross the bridge this summer, so we hope to have a lot of interest.

JUROR OF AWARDS

Dawn Emerson

Dawn Emerson

Dawn is an award winning pastelist, pastel enthusiast, instructor, author of Pastel Innovations,and producer of seven instructional videos. She brings an attitude of playfulness and experimentation to the pastel stage as she merges drawing, painting and printmaking processes to inspire story telling, freedom, and creativity. In her own work she strives for the “Haiku” version of image making– where less is more, and the individual’s marks and empty spaces tell the story. For more information about Dawn, and to see images of her work, please go to her website.

Dawn will be the instructor for our Summer Master Workshop, “Pastel Innovation Workshop”.

The PPSCC is grateful for the support of our sponsors and partners.

PPSCC will host a Signature Strokes in Pastel exhibit showcasing the talents of our Signature members this coming fall at the Creative Art Center in Chatham, MA. The show will run September 12 – October 5, with a tentative opening reception on Sunday, September 12th. Each Signature member is invited to submit to this exhibit. More information will be posted and sent to all Signature members with instructions on entry and delivery of accepted painting. We are hopeful that this show will be in person and that there will be a reception and awards ceremony, if COVID protocols permit.
