Pastel Artists Canada - Purely Pastel Winter Issue, 2003

From the Presidents Easel

This issues cover is fabulous, a beautiful record of a fantastic show. The Art Gallery of Algoma was a wonderful host and very pleased with the high quality of the work presented. The Gallery is one of the nicest spaces in which we have exhib-ited. The show caused quite a stir or should we say a dust storm. Visitors were amazed and appreciative of the painterly vibrant quality of the pastel works. A total of eight works were sold. We had a great opening night. Joan Kelly arranged for a Scottish piper to greet Margaret and the evening pro-gressed from there with a good crowd enjoying the art and refreshments. It was a distinct pleasure to present the awards especially to those present. Many thanks to all the people who helped make this show a success. Both of our workshops with Margaret Evans were great successes. She is a fabulous instructor with a generous wit and talent. This is the second time Margaret has visited with us. Inak Gieysztor and her husband drove Margaret from Ottawa to Sault Ste. Marie giving her a chance to take in the scenery of northern Ontario. The scenery around the Mad Moose Lodge is very different from that of the Ottawa area. Margaret got the plane home just before the Big Black Out and was only sad that she had not seen a moose or a bear dur-ing her stay. The executive met this past September to make plans for the next year(s). Welcome Barry Richman to the executive as Director-at-large and thanks to Rosalie Daly Todd and Shirley Black for all their work on the executive. They are now focusing on other things but will be offering a hand now and then as time permits. I wish to thank the executive as a whole for their willingness to take on responsibility for our associa-tion. There are many members who also help out when they can as coordinators and supporters of events, many thanks personally and on behalf of the association. We are working on great plans for 2004, 2005 and into 2006. Note we have a weekend workshop planned this coming April in Burlington with Pamela Carter from Montreal. Pam is the President of PSEC and an excellent workshop instructor. Claire Schroeven Verbiest from California, is back by popular demand for a 5-day workshop in the Ottawa area, September, 2004. Mark your calendars for both these workshops. There is a lot more information in the newsletter about past and up-coming events, so read on. Rosemary
