Pastel Panorama: Journeys with a Medium
2024 Members’ Exhibition of the Vermont Pastel Society
Exhibition on view: June 8 to September 22
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 8 • 2–4 p.m. at the Wilson Museum

This exhibition highlights the wide-ranging versatility of the pastel medium. Members of the Vermont Pastel Society were encouraged to “take a journey”—to move beyond their comfort zone and try something new by experimenting with mixed media, new subject matter, mark-making, and more.

What makes pastel so unique? Pastels are made with finely ground pure pigment mixed with a small amount of binder. The crystal-like pastel particles reflect light, creating the luminous quality of a pastel painting. When applied to an archival surface and properly framed, they are more permanent and color stable than other media.

Vermont Pastel Society is a statewide organization supporting pastel artists through group exhibitions, workshops, and regional hub activities, as well as educating the public about the pastel medium.

June 8 at 2:00 pm — September 22 at 4:00 pm
2:00 pm — 4:00 pm (2546h)
