PASA - Pastel Artists of South Australia

Message from the PASA President



Hello PASA Members,

Welcome to our Twentieth Anniversary year. Cue blow-ticklers, confetti, streamers, balloons and party hats. 

In this world riven by Covid19 Restrictions here and dire case-loads internationally, we are thankful for the pleasure of the Arts in our life and Community.

I hope you have been busy with your pastels and have entered our Creating the Pastel Dream Exhibition as part of our Anniversary celebrations. The link below holds information about that exhibition.

New to our website is our Members Only section. You will be able to gain access via a password to clips from tutor artists for your viewing and ongoing pastel tuition. Passwords to be emailed out.

Also changing this year, will be a return by popular demand to the printed version of the Dusty Dialogue newsletter. An edition for February/March of 16 colourful pages starts our Anniversary year well with articles pertinent to celebrating the art and artists who have founded PASA. If you renew your membership this quarter, if you have not already done so, you will have the DD arrive in your letter box six times in 2021.

We hope to have quorum at our AGM of Saturday February 13 at Marion where a short demonstration by mixed media artist Lyn Robins will follow the business session.

Some in February and all in March will see all three chapters of PASA resume meetings. Members only in these times.  Check with your local Convenor for any changes in this fast changing tableaux that is Covid world 2020 & 2021. Please come prepared to sign in via the QR code issued by SA Health at each venue. You co-operation is very much appreciated.

Happy Painting,

Karan Hudson

2020 President
