Spotlight on art – Pastel Society Show
The Pastel Society of Southern California hosted a public reception at the Riviera United Methodist Church, showcasing their artists’ latest work. Lynn Attig, co-founder and President Emerita, started the South Bay chapter in 2009. Pastel pigment is the same as what’s used in a wet painting media, but without the oil, water or acrylic binders. Although pastels resemble the look of chalk, they are in the range of 95 to 99 pure pigment and are permanent. There’s also no brush between the artists and their works with pastel. This medium has been in existence since the 16th century, and is designed to create art that would live for generation after generation.
