Beauty By Grace: Pastels, is a beautiful and educational exhibit that is a perfect introduction to the art of pastel. The show features highly regarded artists: Julie Rogers, Robert T. Barrett, Arlene Braithwaite, Marilee Campbell, Carol Harding, Colleen Howe Bleinberger, Mona Woolsey, Amy Davis, and Jerry Hancock.
Pastels have been used for hundreds of years by the Old Masters, and have been revived with many new papers and techniques. It is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. Pastels are praised for the freshness of their colors; each tone requires a different stick of pastel, as the artists make use of hundreds of the sticks. The result can be brilliant, as well as subtle.
The exhibit will also feature a 3D element comprised of outstanding art gourds by Kolene Granger. And Lisa Huber's watercolor series, Trees of Life, will grace the Eccles Foyer.
