Welcome to the 


President's Message

Hoping that summer is finding you enjoying barbecues with friends & family along with getting creative inspiration from the beauty around us.

PSNH board members have been busy brainstorming & organizing many new opportunities for our members! Thanks to Paula Fraser & everyone that helped to make our Members’ Show a success!  Fun was had by all that attended the paint-
out on the grounds of the Civic Center and we sold two paintings at the show!

Bernadette Quirk has been speaking with Alicia Morris from the
Copyright Office Outreach Program to schedule a Zoom session for PSNH members to answer questions that pertain to artists. How artists can protect work when posting online via social media or webpages are just a sampling of topics that Alicia will cover. Date and link to follow.

PSNH is going to have its very own Unison Pastel Set! Bernadette
has contacted Unison and has selected a special set of pastels unique to PSNH. We will be ordering these special 30-piece sets of “Fall in New Hampshire” soon. Members will be able to purchase these sets through our website and at upcoming events.

Mark your calendar for August 15th! In collaboration with the 75th
Anniversary of the Cathedral of the Pines, PSNH members have been invited to paint on their beautiful grounds from 1:00-5:00 pm. The Cathedral is located at 10 Hale Hill Road, Rindge, NH.

Entries open August 1st via ShowSubmit for “It’s Pastel” PSNH’s 13th Annual National Juried Show. Get creative folks, there’s plenty of time to create your masterpiece by the October 3rd deadline! After MUCH research and deliberation, the board has decided to have a virtual show again this year. Plans for an exciting new venue to host our 2022 exhibition are in the works.

New this year: we will be having a Signature Member Show at the
Jaffrey Civic Center! The exhibition will be in the Auditorium Gallery from November 20th – December 18th. Details to follow.

Keep those creative juices flowing and be sure to check the workshops page for our three upcoming workshops featuring Jeri Greenberg, Lynn Asselta, and Jeff Ventola.

Last but not least, PSNH is proudly a co-sponsor of PastelFest 2021.  Save the date for Sept 11th!

Happy painting everyone!
