Comments from Juror of Awards, Nancie King Mertz: “This tender double portrait of family love is beautifully rendered in soft but accurate strokes. Their warm skin tones reinforce the warmth of their relationship.”

John Sloan Award for Excellence

Achieved Master Circle status with International Association of Pastel Societies

December 2017



The IAPS Master Circle was created to honor those artists whose work has been accepted and/or given awards in specific IAPS Exhibitions. Artists who receive the Master Circle designation may use the letters "IAPS/MC" on websites, brochures, magazine articles and other media to indicate their membership in the Master Circle. 

Each recipient of the award receives a three-inch medallion engraved with his or her name and the year the honor was bestowed engraved on the back. The design of the medallion was created by IAPS founder and President Emerita, Urania Christy Tarbet. "It is of a rose with a pastel stick next to it. The rose represents the resurgence of spring, as pastel is in its Renaissance period, and is now being recognized as a wonderful medium after being in the dark for so long. I wanted something very special that had never been done in the art world before, to honor pastel artists whose work was accepted in our exhibitions or awarded prizes. It is important for the recipients to cherish this symbol of excellence. It can be worn at IAPS exhibitions and conventions, and readily identifies IAPS artists who have received one of the most important honors in the pastel world." 



"Artwork of the day: "Twilight" by Linda Armstrong! This beautiful work received the SCNY 1st Prize. "Landscapes: Night and Day" runs through January 26th in the Upper Gallery."
