National Show

PSNM has held a national juried exhibition annually since 1991. Over the years the show has come to be regarded as one of the best in the nation, attracting artists from states across the country, as well as Canada and Europe. Judges and Jurors have included many of the best known pastel artists working today.

Our 26th exhibition was held in an exciting new venue –
Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
Sorrel Sky Gallery is located in the historic downtown art district
and this exhibition was displayed on an entire gallery floor.
