Pastel Society of New Hampshire
Our First Pastel Trade Show
Compliments of the The Pastel Society of New Hampshire and the Rochester Fine Art Store our first pastel Trade show was a great success. It took place Sunday, November 6th after the Annual Member's Meeting.
This was a cash and carry (and order) event highlighting pastel products from the Rochester Fine Art Store in NY. Open stock of Diane Townsend, Girault, Great American, Mount Vision, Sennelier, Schminke, to name a few were available as well Wallis, LaCarte, Uart paper, and Pastel Mat. Set were also available many of which included a discount.
Decisions, decisions decisions So much to chose from...
Rows and rows of individual pastel sticks And pastel papers too
If you missed this show be sure to watch for the 2012 Pastel Trade Show in November. You won't want to miss it!
