We thank you one and all for your generosity. Our Biennial National Exhibition is a way for the Maryland Pastel Society to promote professional, original works of art in the medium of soft pastel. There are many local pastel societies throughout the country, but theMaryland Pastel Society is the oldest state society and is an active member of the International Association of Pastel Societies. While the Society had its roots in the Baltimore area, its members come from all over the Mid-Atlantic region.
