Three of our artists at the Art Stable Gallery are accomplished pastel painters and all three will be showing in the prestigious Pastels By Invitation 2012 exhibition. This by-invitation-only show is comprised of an intimate group of internationally recognized pastelists. The paintings of the Art Stable's Sarah Fielding-Gunn, Kelly Milukas, and Nancy Whitin will be included in the show at the Creative Arts Center, 154 Crowell Rd, Chatham, MA. Other acclaimed pastelists participating in the show include Albert Handell, Anne Heywood, Fred Somers, Frank Federico, to name just a few.
Technically, pastel is powdered pigment, rolled into round or square sticks and held together with methylcellulose, a non-greasy binder. When protected by fixative and glass, pastel is the most permanent of all media, for it never cracks, darkens or yellows.
A galaxy of artists, Copley, Delacroix, Millet, Manet, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Redon, Vuillard, Bonnard, Glackens, Whistler and Hassam, just to list the more familiar names, used pastel. Degas was the most prolific user of pastel, and its champion, for he raised it to the full brilliance of oil.

This weekend, May 25 and 26, let yourself be lured into this delightful gallery! We are open from 11-3, both days. There are stunning photographs, whimsical watercolors, delightful pastels as well as oil paintings! After you've soaked it all in, relax on the patio in front with a cool beverage from Partners, and decide what pieces will get that second look!
Many of us will be there throughout the weekend. We'd love to meet you!
