Information about the artists and the exhibit:
The Ann Arbor Area Pastelists (AAAP) is a group of committed local pastel artists who meet to share their creative insights and support one another at monthly critique meetings. They began as an outgrowth of the Great Lakes Pastel Society, which is based in Grand Rapids and covers several states. AAAP members choose to share their work with the community by exhibiting annually in Washtenaw County.
Pastels are dry pigment combined with a binder to form sticks of color. Artists use an assortment of colors and drawing techniques to create pastel works, from linear drawings to richly layered pastel paintings. AAAP exhibits a variety of styles and approaches to this colorful and versatile medium.
