The Tucson Pastel Society is a new society run by Becky Neideffer, who’s work you could have seen at the last Pastel 100. Becky and other Arizona pastel lovers started the society in January 2010 and they look like a very lively group of artists. They have monthly meetings, monthly newsletter and they have joined the IAPS. This month they got visit and presentation from Brian Freeman, and last month from Phil Starke. Preparation for the first members’ exhibition is ongoing and we hope they will share it with us once it happens.
