For all interested parties, there will be a meeting at the Allegany Arts Council on Saturday, October 10, 2015 from 1pm-3pm. This meeting will be to discuss the probability for the creation of a Pastel League in the Cumberland area. We have a very fine Watercolor Society and Colored Pencil Society in this area. I’d like to see a Soft Pastel League, as well. All levels of expertise are invited, no jury process. All ages over 16. There is little in the immediate area for the promotion of this fine art medium. None for the meeting of minds on this medium, within 200 miles. I’d like to remedy that with the help of others that would enjoy the gathering of like minds. If you already enjoy this medium, please join us. If you never had, but would like to find out how wonderful this medium is, please join us. If just curious, please join us. Light refreshments will be provided. Additional information may be requested at email@example.com or at the Allegany Arts Council - 301-777-2787.
