It feels like I am LiveBlogging the IAPS convention in Albuquerque, NM, although I am not there.  Such are the wonders of Facebook.  Friends are sending me pictures and reports of where my artwork is, and how it is hung, etc.  

Posted above are some notable works by friends of mine.

I have seen Lorraine's beautiful pastel in person!  Very strong, and no surprise it got an honor at IAPS.

International Association of Pastel Societies

This is the time that great pastelists get together in Albuquerque, NM to enjoy a big pastel party known as the IAPS Biennial.  I am not there, but in my stead is a pastel which is in the IAPS Twenty-Second Juried Exhibition.

The convention is June 6th. - 9th.

Is there anyone at the convention that is willing to send us a report?  I'd be glad to post it here.
