Five renowned artists have donated outstanding paintings to be raffled at the gala annual dinner during the Pastel Society of America’s 45th Annual Exhibition: Enduring Brilliance! If you’ve ever dreamed of owning an original framed pastel by one of your favorite artists, your wish just might become a reality! You do not have to be present to win a beautiful painting by a PSA award-winning artist.

With each raffle purchase, you will contribute to the well-being of the PSA School for Pastels, home to four on-going classes with open enrollment and eighteen workshops in 2017/18. One hundred percent of raffle sales go to the school operating fund for special projects, such as a new paint job for the studio walls, air conditioning upgrade, and continued equipment upgrades. 

Thank you for supporting the educational vision of PSA.
