ABOUT PASTEL ARTISTS OF HAWAII
Pastel Artists of Hawaii (PAH) is an educational, publicly/member supported, non-profit organization, established in 2001 to primarily promote awareness of soft pastel as a serious art medium, and secondarily, to develop and maintain a national society standing. To reach these goals, we sponsor an annual open-juried exhibition each year, in which an invited, experienced artist juries, presents awards and teaches an educational workshop.
As a well-known local pastel/watercolor artist, Helen C. Iaea had longed for a society that was dedicated to the above principles. Encouraged and supported by many of her students, she completed the difficult work of organizing the society in 2001, and thus became it's first president. Now a director of PAH, Helen is an also an associate member of the Pastel Society of America.
PAH periodically sponsors seminars and local workshops, such as those given by Pastel Society of America members Alan Flattmann, Gregory Biolchini, Maggie Price, Richard McKinley, Desmond O'Hagan, Jason Chang, Colette Odya Smith, Sally Strand, Terry Ludwig and Mark Norseth, a Hawaii resident. All this requires funding and in this regard, we encourage membership and accept donations.
PAH's annual juried exhibition is open to all, members and non-members alike, with only a small fee-based difference. Awards are given for the best works not only to reward, but also to encourage artists to do their best.
