“I’ve been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. After many years as a news and courtroom artist, I covered some of the nation’s most notorious trials, and now want to concentrate on showcasing the positive aspects of the world. I love capturing bits and pieces of the good that is around me.”

18th Annual Mile High International Pastel Exhibition 

Gilpin County Arts Association
117 Eureka Street
Central City, Colorado
Opening Reception: April 9, 1-4 p.m.
Show: April 9-May 21

Pastel is pure pigment, and is the most stable and permanent of all painting media. Pastel (often confused with chalk) was introduced by Leonardo da Vinci as a highlighting technique for drawing, and emerged as a major force in 18th-century portraiture. Many great artists, including Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Georgia O’Keeffe and James McNeil Whistler, feature pastels among their most important works.

This exhibition is a pastels-only show, sponsored by the Pastel Society of Colorado.
