*IMPORTANT* - March meeting and member show

What: First Coast Pastel Society meeting
When: Saturday, March 1, 10 AM to 12 noon
Where: Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra Beach

If anyone plans to participate in our upcoming juried member show in May please read on carefully. Requirements are different  from previous shows.

Entries submitted for the spring member show will be juried and accepted into the show based strictly on JPG images submitted on CD. If you are not comfortable with this process then read on, the March meeting may be just what you need:

The program for our March 1 meeting at the Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra will feature Pablo Rivera (photographer) and Susan Picket (graphic artist). They will demonstrate photographing paintings for entering shows or website display.  Pablo will begin by discuss his approach to photographing art. He will then photograph one of our member's paintings. Susan will then use the memory card, with these photos, to demonstrate how she prepares photos for entering competitions, websites or other uses. During this time Pablo will continue to photograph member's work. This is a great opportunity to have some of your work photographed by a professional photographer and artist. You are encouraged to bring up to 3 (unframed paintings) to be photographed.  

This year, we will jury paintings for our Juried Members Show from photos submitted on CD. As our membership grows and we have more members outside our immediate area, it becomes necessary to have paintings juried by photos on a CD similar to what other pastel societies do. The March 1, meeting at the Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra, will give you an opportunity to learn to do this yourself and if you like to have up to 3 of your paintings photographed for our Juried Members Show.

So get busy painting and work ready to be photographed at our March 1 meeting. To have work photographed, members need to sign up, in advance, so we have an idea of how much time to allow. You can sign up by emailing Lyn Asselta to say you are interested. Once we know how many are interested in getting photographs of their work, we can better plan the time needed for Pablo and Susan. There will be no charge to members to have their paintings photographed, however, we may have to charge a small fee for the CD disk and mailing. Below is a copy of the prospectus for our Juried Show at the Cultural Center. In addition, this show will continue at the Larimer Arts Center in Palatka. Read all about it in the Prospectus.

The prospectus is available online here at our blog. :Look to the right under "FCPS Website" just below the PayPal link. You can bring it from here if you choose.
