ABOUT THE ADIRONDACK PASTEL SOCIETY

The Adirondack Pastel Society was founded in Glens Falls, NY in 2008 with the objective to provide exhibiting opportunities to pastel artists, and to educate the public, gallery owners and collectors about the merits and beauty of the soft pastel medium. APS organizes an Annual National Exhibit, members shows and program meetings throughout the year.

With over 40 continuous members from around the Adirondack region, many have earned the national prestige of PSA, which is a national recognition by the Pastel Society of America. Membership is open to all who are interested in the medium of soft (dry) pastels.

The Adirondack Pastel Society is a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies. Several of our members have received recognition for their works on the IAPS website. For more information, please visit adirondackpastelsociety.com.
