Lake Country Pastel Society Stillwater Show

A huge thanks to all who participated in our Stillwater Show! We had 22 artists participate and 42 pieces of art in the gallery and we received many positive comments about our show.

Congratulations to Fred Somers, who won the People’s Choice Award, with his pastel “Where You Ought to Be”.

A special thanks to our many volunteers who planned the show, helped at the reception, and worked with hanging and taking down the show. It was great to see such a strong and vibrant collection of pastels at the gallery!
