Pastel Artists of New Zealand

This stunning exhibition comprises a selection of artwork by members of the Pastel Artists of New Zealand.

Pastel art groups are spread throughout the country, with artists encouraged to attend the PANZ conference each year alternating between North and South Island destinations. This year the three-day event is being held in Stratford. 

In conjunction with the conference, there is a national exhibition, Purely Pastel. This national exhibition at Percy Thomson Gallery features more than 80 selected works, as well as a section comprising precious award winners.
