Aug 29: Jeanne Rosier Smith takes top prize in IAPS Exhibition

Jeanne Rosier Smith (NRA-2012) of Sudbury, Massachusetts, won the Prix de Pastel (top prize) in the International Association of Pastel Societies twentieth juried exhibition. This year, the show is being held in the city of Brea, California and runs through September 14th.

“The winning painting is one in a series of waves I’ve been working on for the past three years. They just got more interesting to me — the movement, power and light — the possibilities for abstraction and yet absolute realism. There’s something also about capturing an illusion of splash and foam with a completely dry medium that appeals to me.”
