to the Austin Pastel Society...Whether you have an interest in learning more about the medium of pastel or you're an active pastel artist, we hope you will join us for monthly programs, juried & non-juried exhibitions and special events! ​

At the June 25 meeting the following board members were elected or returned to the board for another year:

Spring is the time to clean out your studio! 

Time to unload all that stuff getting in the way of your creativity. Our Annual Garage Sale is the perfect way to recycle the old easel you replaced last year, the plein air kit you never use, the pastel set you thought you'd love but didn't, brushes and paint you never touch, canvas, pastel board, paper, frames, glass, anything art related. Sell or trade it with other artists at bargain prices.

A garage sale no artist should miss!

Buyers don't forget to bring cash or a checkbook, sellers be sure to have plenty of change on hand. 

Sunday, June 25 , 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Annual Garage Art Garage Sale bring 

no longer needed art supplies, equip-

ment and even paintings to sell to each other at garage sale prices.
