Annual Members Show

PSME presents an annual Members Exhibition held at different locations throughout Maine. All current PSME members are invited to submit one framed pastel to this exhibition. This is a non-juried show and entries are juried only for awards. Awards are announced and distributed at the opening reception.  A pastel demonstration is typically scheduled at the end of the show and presented directly before painting pick-up. For more information, contact the PSME Member Show Chair by completing the inquiry form:  CONTACT PSME.

An Annual Members Show is planned for 2018.
