Experience the purely pigmented, unfading presence of pastel at the International Association of Pastel Societies’ Pastelworld 2019 this Thursday, June 6 through Sunday, June 9. From 9am to 9pm at the Hotel Albuquerque (800 Rio Grande Blvd. NW) in Old Town, there will be a display hundreds of pastel paintings from around the world by some of the finest artists ever to put stick to tooth. Fancy yourself a pastel artist? Then you are going to want to check out the trade show in conjunction with this event that the International Association of Pastel Societies calls “the candy store.” For more information about this free, all-ages event, see IAPSpastel.org.
