Southwest Florida Pastel Society Pop-up Gallery at The Village Shops on Venetian Bay, Waterfront Shopping, Waterfront Art, Pastel Painting

The Village Shops on Venetian Bay Welcomes the Pastel Society Pop-up Gallery!

The Village Shops on Venetian Bay and the United Arts Council are proud to partnered together for another year to welcome more talented artists to The Village Shops. Now through the end of February, the Southwest Florida Pastel Society has opened a pop-up gallery showcasing the artwork of seven talented artists – Don Jones, Kathy Anzeveno, Lynne Wilcox, Marianne Crowley, Maureen Gerrity, Pam Conrad, and Patricia M. Gray.

The Southwest Florida Pastel Society is a non-profit organization of pastel artists who live and work in Southwest Florida. The society encourages and promotes enthusiastic pastel artists in their growth and success through monthly meetings and programs, workshops, activities, and exhibition opportunities. The society also promotes, stimulates, and fosters creative painting with pastels, which is evident when viewing the many paintings that adorn the walls of the gallery.

Upon entering thebeautiful Pastel Society Pop-up Gallery, located on the north side of The Village Shops in suite 502, the eye is immediately drawn to the dozens of vibrant, framed pastel paintings from each artist. Pastels are best known for their superior quality of color and light achieved through the use of pure pigment with reflective qualities not found in other mediums. This, coupled with their permanence, make pastels a very good investment, insuring beauty and quality for years, if not generations to come.

On Saturday, February 9th, join The Pastel Society of Southwest Florida for a reception. The reception is open to the public, offering an opportunity to meet the seven talented artists and find an artwork that speaks to you! The reception is from 5:30-7:30pm and includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine.
