About the 2016 Chicago Pastel Painters Art Exhibit

Our Sixth Biennial Member Juried Exhibition, Strokin’ VI !, was another smashing success with 52 members submitting 142 images for jurying.
Our juror of selections chose 50 works from 32 artists, with the exhibit hosted by the Art & Company Design Center in Orland Park, Illinois.
This leads me to my first thank you. Donald Glassner and Lynn Imperiale at Art & Company were tireless in their effort to make this
show awesome, from hanging to homemade refreshments! Also big shout-outs go to Tatijana Jacenkiw, Evelyn Brody, Dotty Carringi, and
all the volunteers that without their never-ending help this exhibition doesn’t happen. And above all, enormous congratulations to all the
accepted members! Their incredible work displayed the high caliber of professionalism needed to show that pastels belong as a viable
medium in Chicago’s art community.
