The Vermont Pastel Society
2016 Member’s Show
Art’s Alive is dedicated to increasing awareness and appreciation of Vermont visual artists.
Vermont Pastel Society will be holding its 2016 members’ show during the month of April, with the opening and awards ceremony on Friday April 1 at 6:00 p.m. The organizers of the show have made some different, and hopefully fun and entertaining, changes to the usual process of offering no prizes to this non-juried exhibition. The VPS wanted to honor the varied and considerable talents of a larger group of artists rather than to just commend a few “top winners,” so several categories of awards with clever titles (Most Luminous Landscape, Most Lively Still Life, etc.) have been chosen to promote and recognize the diverse work of this group. Mickey Myers, Executive Director of Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville, VT, will bring her playful spirit to the venue as our judge.
Volunteer VPS members have generously donated their time to solicit local and national organizations for prizes. We have garnered wonderful prizes from the following donors: Blick Art Materials, Mt. Vision Pastels, Rochester Art Supply, French Canvas, Dotsie Brothers Framers, Artworks, Zephyr Design, Michael Chesley Johnson, Vermont Art Supply, ProArt Critique, Otter Creek Frame Shop, Phoenix Bookstore, City Market and Trader Joe’s.
The VPS Board and show organizers encourage the public to attend this wonderful opportunity to see beautiful pastel paintings by mostly Vermont artists. Who knows, you might find that one of the artists is your neighbor!

Art’s Alive Presents
Art’s Alive welcomes Nancy Tomczak to The Gallery, starting in March through the end of April.
Her spontaneous flow of color and added anatomical detail are combined with her watercolor paintings. Recently she has been working on collages of her watercolor images in order to push the boundaries of her compositions. Birds of the northeast in various settings, some with unusual encounters, are the most common subjects of these paintings. A life-long observer of birds has pooled with her love of watercolor painting for seemingly endless inspiration. Curated by SEABA.
Please join us and the artists for the Opening Reception, as part of Art Map Burlington’s First Friday Art Walk, on March 4th at 60 Main Street, Suite 2-E, for more information, please contact SEABA at 802-859-9222 or firstname.lastname@example.org Open M-F, 8-3pm, Sat-Sun by apt only.
