The Pastel Society of North Carolina was originally formed in 1996 with the purpose of promoting standards of excellence in the use of the medium of soft pastels. The Society members show in many regional exhibitions and have works in many private and public collections. The Society holds meetings on a monthly basis during which programs, demonstrations and critiques are held. During the year the society sponsors several workshops.
