PASA - Pastel Artists of South Australia


Dear PASA members,

Your committee are delighted to announce that we now have a new PASA President, Jill McDonald.  Jill is writing a piece for your next Dusty Dialogue to introduce herself so look out for this.

We are currently holding a raffle for two artworks (by Tricia Taylor and Chris Blake) and asking all members to sell a book of ten tickets.  Please return your sold ticket stubs at our July meeting and collect another book if you are able to sell more.   If you can’t get to a meeting you can deposit the money in the PASA bank account and post your ticket stubs to PO Box 642 Blackwood 5051.

Kerryn Hocking has been our Exhibition Coordinator now for several years but now needs to pass on the role. So we are seeking somebody to organise exhibitions for PASA. This would entail investigating and booking venues, managing the paperwork, and organising a team of assistants to hang and take down exhibitions. Kerryn has booked an exhibition for 2024 at Pepper St Gallery. For further information please contact Kerryn. Her contact details are in Dusty Dialogue.

If you have put your name down with Lesley Jorgensen for the Tricia Taylor workshop on 5-6 October could you please confirm and pay your deposit of $50 before 14th June to secure your place or you may miss out.. Please contact Lesley Jorgensen if you have any queries about the workshop. (

A reminder about the change in date for our July meeting.  Due to availability of the hall, we will meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month which is the 20th July.

From your committee.



20th July 2024

Our next monthly meeting will be held on the 20th July as the hall where we meet is being painted earlier in the month.  Diana Bradshaw will be doing a demonstration with a focus on perspective We look forward to seeing you on the 20th.
