The 40th Annual Pastel Society of America Exhibition ended its run with a gala awards dinner at the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park. This New York City annual is always a major draw and Salmagundi was very well represented on the walls, at the tables and accepting a generous share of prizes and accolades from the podium.

    What a wonderful celebration of Pastel! After working in pastel for over 55 yrs. Pastel has truly reached a Rennaissance of popularity and appreciation. I appreciate the honor of receiving an award with the name of Flora Giffuni on it as well as having it for the work I did honoring my mentor Daniel Greene. Great job to all who worked so hard on such a great event. Thank you all, Claudia Post
