The Pastel Society of Eastern Canada (PSEC) was founded in Montreal in 1995. Our company is a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS), The Pastel Society of America (PSA), and Pastel Artists Canada(PAC).
PSEC is a non-profit corporation made up of professional and amateur artists who use dry pastel as a medium. The aims of the association are:
- Promote and encourage artistic activities as well as knowledge and appreciation of the arts in the field of pastel;
- Publicize the pastel community by sponsoring exhibitions of members’ work and other appropriate means for public education in the pastel field;
- Provide opportunities for the advancement of talent through workshops, conferences, seminars, publications.
PSEC is governed by a Board of Directors whose members are elected every 2 years, during the Annual General Meeting. For the current year, the members of the committee will find themselves under the Contact Us page.
