The Pastel Expressions show opened on May 1 and on May 3 SAMA of Ligonier Valley was a participant in the local Museum Day. A joint PaintOut with CPPS and PPAL was held on the museum grounds and it was a lovely day for Plein Air painting. The event was well attended and there was lots of interest in the painters and the show. Attending from PPAL were Patricia Young, Rita Kambic Haldeman, Diane Grguras, Marian Sallade, Karen Frerrick and Nan Hought. Anne Kenyon attended from CPPS.
The Pastel Expressions show is beautifully and professionally displayed and the Museum has produced a large trifold brochure featuring a dozen color reproductions of members paintings. It is about a 2 hour drive from State College and well worth the trip.
