2nd European Pastel Convention in France

The world oldest pastel society, the Société des Pastellistes de France was created in 1885. The Society’s members were world famous artists like Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Mary Cassatt, and many other major pastelists.
As a part of a bigger Pastel Festival, they are organizing 2nd European Pastel Convention on July 17-19 2010., and if you speak some French take a look at the leaflet front / back.
Five artist previously honored as Master Pastelists will hold the demonstrations – Gwenneth Barth, Alain Bellanger, Pierre Caro and Patrick Martin. Take a look at some photos from the 1st convention held in 2007.
I got this information thanks to Artist in Pastel blog.
