PASTEL SOCIETY OF COLORADO

The PSC Annual Member Show...

Each year, the PSC schedules a pastel show for which only its members are eligible. Alternating annually between a Front Range and a Western Slope venue, the Members Show provides visitors with a chance to view paintings by new members and anticipate seeing work by well-known and highly acclaimed professionals. The opening reception is a festive occasion where artists and visitors mingle with enthusiasm and celebrate the success of those whose paintings are selected for awards by the show’s judge. As with all artwork sold through PSC shows, the commission collected by the organization is used to fund cash awards for artists in future exhibitions.

Our Judge is Bev Lee

Bev is inspired by light and color when painting. Still life and people are often her favorite subjects, although she also enjoys painting animals. Her distinctive style captures the emotion of her subjects in a painterly realistic way.

 

While Bev studied at Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University), she is basically self taught. Bev has studied in workshops offered by Doug Dawson, Terry Ludwig, Xiang Zhang and Daniel Greene. She paints in both pastel and oils using a style and technique of layering on of rich vibrant color.

 

Bev has been juried into numerous competitions, receiving many awards including "Best of Show" and "People's Choice." Her paintings can be found in both private and corporate collections throughout the country. Bev has been featured and her works published in the Pastel Artist International, the Artist Magazine, the International Artist Magazine and the Pastel Journal. Two of her paintings have been in the top 100 in the Pastel Journal. Her book, Painting Children secrets to capturing childhood moments, is available through North Light Books/Fw publications. Bev is one of 40 artists featured in the North Light book, Sketchbook Confidential.
