Five GVA pastelists have had pieces accepted into the Great Lakes Pastel Society 2017 Members’ Show being held from May 26th through July 8th at the South Haven Center for the Arts at 600 Phoenix St., South Haven. Kathleen Kalinowski and Marilyn Troutman each had two paintings chosen and Larry Blovits, Gene Sampson and Shirley Haan each had one painting accepted. On July 8th, from 1:00 to 4:00, the jurist, renowned portraitist William Schneider, will be presenting a portrait demonstration. The fee for that demo will be $5.00.
Please stop in for a great salad at Bliss & Vinegar, where you will see Sri Soekarmoen McCarthy’s work. If you want to show your work at B&V, make sure to load some images to our website, as that is where the owners go to find art they would like to display. Marty Klar coordinates this opportunity for us. Thanks, Marty!

Have you wished you had more time to work on a painting? That the same model was available 3 sessions in a row?

The first series will take place on these dates: Thursdays, June 29, July 6, and July 13, from 10 until 2 p.m.
This is open to members and non-members. The cost will be the model fee, which will depend on the number of artists present each day. Anyone is welcome to come to all or one day.
