This show will feature the wonderful work of our Pastel Society of Colorado members including emerging artists through seasoned Signature and Master Signature members. All works will be completed in dry pastel and will be available for purchase. 

The show is not juried, and each member may submit two pieces. However, if there are more artworks submitted than the gallery space can accommodate, we will only be able to show one from each artist. 

The Great Frame-Up is located on Main Street in Longmont, a recognized arts district. The area attracts both locals and tourists throughout the year and will host local celebrations such as Longmont’s traditional Dia de los Muertos during the run of this PSC show, increasing foot traffic on Main Street.
