    Six Pastel Painters

    October 18 –November 14
    Reception & Demonstration | Saturday October 19 | 2 – 4 PM

    Visit Portsmouth Public Library between October 18 and November 14 to view Six Pastel Painters, an exhibition of work by Catherine DiPentima, Pat DuBois, Barbara Barclay, Sandra Kavanaugh, Laurie Levesque, and Debbie Codd.

    Artists’ Statement: The group Six Pastel Painters has been meeting at the wonderful Portsmouth Public Library for several years now. We come together because we love to paint, but also to critique work, to laugh and to support each other in our endeavors. The group includes artists who are newer to painting with the Pastel medium as well as those who have been doing so for decades. Our group includes artists who have won numerous awards, been juried into countless exhibits and organizations and have had national recognition! We hope that you will enjoy our work.
