While the exhibiting artists and their works vary greatly in genre, the artists themselves are connected in their use of the medium of pastel. First popularized by the French Impressionists, the deep, rich colors and crystalline nature of pastels result in a splendid luminosity that can not be achieved with any other medium.
Coastal Carolina Pastel Painters (CCPP) is a branch of the Pastel Society of North Carolina and was formed in 2020 by local artists from the NC Coastal area. Members of CCPP range from emerging to internationally recognized artists and reside up and down the coast from Calabash to Jacksonville.
Artist and member Pamela Cook said, "It is exciting to be part of the reemergence of pastels as a fine art medium. And our vibrant, talented local group continues to produce brilliant pieces of art. This
