Acceptance into Oil Pastel Society

I am proud to announce that I’ve been accepted as a member into the Oil Pastel Society  at the Professional Artist level.

The Oil Pastel Society is an active international organization of artists seeking to further the advancement of oil pastels as a fine art medium.

The Professional oil pastel artist is one who has reached a high level of expertise with the medium.  This is a juried category.

The OPS Mission Statement (as taken from the site)

The Oil Pastel Society was formed on September 1, 2004, to promote the knowledge and understanding of oil pastel as a fine art medium and to expand the awareness of oil pastel to other artists, galleries, the media, and the general public.  Thru the internet, the Society reaches an international community of artists who share their art and inspire one another in furthering oil pastel as a fine art medium.

The aim of the society is to offer oil pastelists an opportunity to band together focusing on oil pastels as a serious fine art medium, providing galleries for members to showcase their artwork and participate in a members’ only online show each year.

To learn more about the organization, I invite you to visit the website by following this link:  Oil Pastel Society.
