2022 Members Open Online Exhibition

See the Gallery

November 12, 2022 through January 18, 2023

Awards will be Presented on Saturday November 12, 2022 at 1:00 to 3:00 pm via Zoom.

The Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod’s (PPSCC) Annual Member’s Open 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 our website.

NEW – Emerging Artist Category

This category is open to any member with non-professional status who has not yet won awards in national or international shows, is not a signature member of a pastel society, and is not represented by a gallery.

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.
