The Pastel Society of Western New York (PSWNY) was formed in March of 2015. We are currently a membership of 48, including members from Canada and Pennsylvania. We are a member society of the International Association of Pastel Societies iapspastel.org
The PSWNY meets bimonthly alternating between Monday evenings (6:30 pm) and Saturday mornings (10am) on set dates. We have an annual juried exhibition at various locations.
The PSWNY hosts national workshops. In 2016 we hosted Deborah Stewart (Abstract) in May ,and hosted Aaron Schuerr . 2017 brought us Marla Baguetta (color) and Stan Sperlak (landscape in pastel). The workshops are open to members only during the first month of registration and then they open to the public.
