Juror, Dawn Emerson

Dawn Emerson has been a signature member of the Pastel Society of America since 1997.  “My criteria for judging a show is based on selecting pieces that show mastery of the pastel medium, beautiful composition, variety in the way the medium is used, and a quality of magic that makes the artist’s vision unique.  The versatility of pastel is expressed in spades in this show!”
