Premier Pastel Society of Indiana Art Exhibit
The Premiere Pastel Society of Indiana, Inc. (PPSI) is having their debut exhibit at the Blackford County Arts Center (BCAC) from Monday, September 25th -Wednesday, November 1st. The opening reception is being held on Sunday, October 1st , 2-4 pm at BCAC. The exhibit and the opening reception are free and open to the public.
The pastel society came into existence in January 2023, when the need was discovered for pastel artists to have exhibits, educate, and workshop in the east central Indiana area. The only other pastel society in Indiana is in South Bend. PPSI is open to all artists in Indiana but meetings are held in Fort Wayne and at times in Muncie.
Artists represented at the PPSI exhibit are from Fort Wayne, Eaton, Muncie, Yorktown, Alexandria, Anderson, and New Castle. There are 48 pieces in the show and most are for sale. There are also two collaborative pieces that are being auctioned off to the highest bidder, with bidding beginning at $50. The public is also invited to put in their votes for a People’s Choice Award.
