Each year the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod sponsors its annual national juried pastel exhibition, "For Pastels Only on Cape Cod 2014," at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod on Old Main Street in South Yarmouth, MA. Since our founding in the mid 1990s, we have put a lot of stock into this annual exhibition which promises to include some of the best in pastel from artists across the country. This year's show, no doubt, will follow suit.
We encourage our members, our friends in other pastel societies, and aspiring pastelists throughout the world to submit up to three images online through ShowSubmit.com to compete for a spot in this coveted show. The awards presented at our Opening Reception on June 21 include a $1,000 Best of Show, along with many cash and merchandise awards.
This year's jurors of selection are Barbara Courtney Jaenicke of Georgia and Stan Sperlak of New Jersey, both of whom are signature members of the Pastel Society of America. We are honored to have these two very talented artists evaluate the submissions. Barbara Courtnery Jaenicke, who will be on hand for the Awards Presentation, will serve as our FPO 2014 Judge of Awards and present a master workshop on Cape Cod during the opening week of FPO.

There are many opportunities to become more involved with PPSCC. The most direct way is to become a member of our board of directors. There are a few key openings now as some people are stepping down, and there will be more soon.
