Passionate About Pastels

Sunday 11 August 2019 - Saturday 31 August 2019 - 15:30

An Exhibition of pastel paintings, by Auckland pastel artists. 
Exhibition Opening: Sunday 11th August,  4pm - All Welcome. 

In the past 20 years, there has been a renaissance in pastel, as it can be used as both a drawing and painting medium. Pastels are created using almost pure pigment, and when an artist picks up a stick of pastel, they’re holding light and colour in their fingertips. Pastels have an unlimited colour palette of rich vibrant colours, with few constraints as to application and expression. Over thirty Auckland pastel artists have come together for this exhibition, to showcase their pastel paintings and the pastel medium.  This exhibition of over eighty pastel paintings, will include pastel paintings by award winning artists David Barker, Michael and Julie Freeman, Merle Bishop and Julia Henderson, in the Becroft Gallery at The Lake House Arts Centre in Takapuna, showing from 11th - 31st August 2019.
