Hello PSNH!

     If you are new to our organization, we welcome you and are happy you’re here! We have all levels of painters, and all levels of activities and opportunities available. If you need information, check the website. We are also on social media and you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the latest news and events. We are a member of IAPS, the International Association of Pastel Societies and you have benefits as a member of PSNH with IAPS. Returning members, thank you for renewing early. If you have not renewed, please do so via the Shop! We exist for the benefit of all our members, so please let me know if you have any suggestions or comments.
     There are several board positions open- we are in the process this year of updating the position descriptions to clearly describe responsibilities and privileges. All these changes require a quorum vote by the board, and all jobs will be updated after the next board meeting.

     On to the fun parts: SAVE these dates! and go to the website to read detailed descriptions of these events-they are all on the website.

June 21-24th 3–4-day member retreat in Jackson NH-this is something we haven’t been able to do the last few years and this one promises to be memorable. Lisa Regopoulos will be doing demos and helping us locate places to paint. We will also be visiting Jackson Art Studio, and Jackson Historical Society. Please read the details to understand why this is an unusual opportunity and why the timing of the retreat is
serendipitous. We are also allowing some members to come and paint with us who won’t be required to stay at the Wildcat Inn.
Sept 17th 1 day workshop with Keith Demanche in New Castle NH. Have you wanted to try plein air but felt intimidated by the whole process? This is for you.
Oct 27-29th a three day workshop with Anne Strutz at the Kittery Community Center, Maine. This is in conjunction with the opening of our National Show in Portsmouth and will be on the website soon.

We love to have paint-outs and will roll those out as the weather improves. If you have a beautiful place and would like to co-host a paint-out with us, we can do logistics.

If you feel ready for Signature Status and would like to apply, please see the website for that information. It is a prestigious and recognized credential. Signature artists, please have a look at the website to update your artist page. This is an opportunity for you. We also want fresh artwork for the members’ online gallery: look under the Members tab on the website for details.

Lastly, we have a beautifully hand curated set of Unison pastels, also available with a member discount, on the website, Summer Summit Views. Check it out.

2023 is looking good from here. I hope to see many of you in person this year. Happy Painting!

Annie Halvorsen
