Lake Country Pastel Society Spring Show
Frameworks in Highland Park St. Paul, MN
April 7, 2018 through June 2, 2018
Our next show venue will be at The Frameworks in the Highland Park area of St. Paul (2022A Ford Parkway, St. Paul, MN) from April 7, 2018 through June 2, 2018. This show will be a non-juried show (open invitational for members and new members) for entry but entry submittals will be judged after opening by Doug Dawson who will be giving a pastel workshop for those LCPS members that signed up, in early May. Doug is an internationally known pastelist who has won many awards and Frameworks has also graciously agreed to provide space for Doug to hang some of his pieces during the show when he is in town. Many thanks go out to Frameworks and Manager Mandy Bitzegaio for making this exciting venue possible.
