2019 Northeast National Pastel Exhibition (Old Forge, NY) – Call For Artists

2019 Northeast National Pastel Exhibition (Old Forge, NY) – Call For Artists

View announces a call for artists for the 2019 Northeast National Pastel Exhibition. The exhibition celebrates one of the most accessible and loved media, the art of pastel, made by artists across the nation. In the 15th century, using pastels, pigmented sticks, or crayons to apply color to a substrate originated. In the 18th century, pastels were popularly used for portrait painting. James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Mary Cassatt used pastels to great painterly effect in the late 1880s to create evocative landscapes and intimate moments. The Society of Painters in Pastel was founded in 1883 in New York. The medium became popular across the country by the early 1900s.

2019 Northeast National Pastel Exhibition Judges

Juror of Selection: Jodie Kain

Jodie Kain’s first studio experience was in Robert Beverly Hale’s anatomy class at the Art Students League of New York. This experience set the base of her artistic approach: an emphasis on strict anatomical modeling and other elements of the classical method. Building on this academic tradition, Jodie studied under photorealist Rob Neffson. Later, the opportunity to live in London and attend The Heatherley School of Fine Art arose. This training was supplemented by figure study classes at several artist’s studios.

After a career in high-end graphics systems, the Bargue and Cast curriculum at the Academy of Realist Art in Boston refreshed Jodie’s passion for realist painting. Jodie works exclusively in pastels, as it provides a tactile experience that deepens her connection to the subject. In her Boston studio, she focuses on the quiet reflective moments in life. Her paintings vibrate with emotion, set within a rhythmic world.

Jodie’s work has been recognized in a series of regional and national exhibits. Two of the most prominent have been The Guild of Boston Artists 2017 and 2018 Regional Juried Exhibitions. Among the awards Jodie has been honored to receive, two were from the 2018 Northeast National Pastel Exhibition, one of which was Second Place.

Juror of Awards: Ingrid Van Slyke, PSA, IAPS, NAWA

Ingrid exhibits her work nationally and throughout the Northeast. Her pastel works have earned her numerous awards and honors. Including the Cape Cod award given at the Pastel Society of America exhibition in New York City. She is a Signature member of the Pastel Society of America, Adirondack Pastel Society, International Association of Pastel Societies, and the National Association of Women Artists. Ingrid teaches pastel and painting workshops . She is represented at Gallery 46 in Lake Placid, NY.
