Good Practices for Framing Pastel Paintings with Pamm Iannazzo
Saturday, October 8, 11:30 am-12:30 pm

Clements Community Center, 1580 Yarrow St, Lakewood (near Wadsworth & Colfax)
2nd floor Columbine Room
We are so lucky to have Pamm Iannazzo, gifted pastel painter and co-owner of the Longmont Great Frame Up, scheduled to talk with us about how to frame pastel paintings! This informal session offered conveniently before the October Front Range Members meeting, will cover framing methods for small and large paintings, spacers, mats or not, acrylic vs glass (and how to keep it clean), and how to pick a frame that makes your painting sing. Go to Pamm's web site to enjoy her paintings and biography. [Note: Chris Serr of Abend gallery who was originally scheduled for this date developed a conflict, so we are EXTRA grateful that Pamm has agreed to do this for us!]

Information 12:50 - 1:15

Demo with Terrie Lombardi! 1:15 - 2:45
For the October demo, Terrie will be painting a floral. Beginning with a pastel and turpenoid wash, she will then gradually layer soft pastels over the underpainting resulting in a beautiful and rich floral - with expressive use of color and value.
To see more of her work visit:
