MAPS is proud to announce “Capturing Color”, a pastel exhibition judged at Center du Belvédère from September 2 to October 27. An awards reception will be held on October 20 from 4-6 p.m.

The judge for the exhibition is Nancie King Mertz, PSA-MP, CPP-MP, IAPS-EP, an award-winning master pastel artist who paints in both pastel and oil. Nancie has traveled and taught all over the world, but Chicago is her favorite city to paint, and the city has twice awarded her “Artist of the Year”.

The paints featured in this exhibition are primarily soft pastels, the same dry pigment used for oil and watercolor paints, mixed with a binder and pressed into a stick that is used for drawing on textured or sanded paper . Pastels have a richness of color that is both brilliant and subtle. The paintings include landscapes, still lifes, portraits, animals and non-figurative subjects.

The MidAtlantic Pastel Society (MAPS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and better understanding pastels as an artistic medium.
