  • IAPS'12~~Connie Burkhardt, Vicki Smith, Denise Beard, and I attended the IAPS convention in Albuquerque, NM, this month.  Photos are available on our Facebook page.  Lots of inspiration, art demos, classes, and supplies through the trade show!  New Braunfels Artist--Rita Kirkman taught a workshop and her artwork was on the cover of the Art Exhibition catalog.  Way to go, Rita! (I also attached a photo from IAPS.)
  • I'm featuring our members' artwork on our TPS Facebook page.  So far, I have spotlighted Connie Burkhardt, Barbara Gadsby, and Tom Beasley.  Please send me your images with titles, sizes, etc.  I will post them on our page this summer to promote you and your pastel artwork.  
  • I am currently working on putting together a nominations committee for new 2018 Board Members.  The following officer positions will be open:  President and Treasurer.  If you would like to volunteer or have a suggestion, please let me know.  Gaye Sekula, a new member, has volunteered to replace Kay Brooks for our secretary.  Our TPS election will take place in November 2017.  BIG Thanks!

Please stay in touch.  If you have art news, please send it to Kay Brooks and she can forward it to our members.  

Stay inspired!
