To Celebrate Arts Month, the Pikes Peak Pastel Society has been invited to hold their annual juried art show at Academy Art & Frame in Colorado Springs. The show’s theme “Renewal in Light and Shadow” will feature art by many of the Pastel Society’s local members with works of all sizes using the medium of soft pastel. All of the work exhibited in the show is made by Colorado artists.

“Renewal in Light and Shadow” will run through October 30, with an Artists Reception on Friday, October 15, from 3- 7PM. The outdoor reception will include vendor and artist booths, with delicious BBQ from Taste Bud Rescue Food Truck. The Artists Reception is free and open to the public.

The Pikes Peak Pastel Society dates back to 1999 when a group of local Colorado Springs and Pueblo artists began seriously working in pastel. PPPS was officially incorporated as a not-for-profit association in 2000, and celebrated 20 years in 2020. The PPPS Mission is to promote, educate and encourage artistic excellence in soft pastel painting among its members within the community. Educational workshops, painting demonstrations and workshops, plein air paint-outs, field trips to art exhibits and museums are all part of member meetings and special events.
