Pastel show draws crowd to JarrettThor’s

The Pastel Society of Virginia (PSV) drew a record turnout on Friday for its Opening Reception and Announcement of Award Winners at JarrettThor Fine Arts.


The Pastel Society of Virginia (PSV) successfully launched its annual exhibit, “Luminosity on the Potomac”, at JarrettThor Fine Arts in Colonial Beach on Sept. 13. There were 47 entries by 24 artists from all over the state. More than 150 people attended the opening reception at the gallery.  

Judge Lisa Semerad of Alexandria made the award presentations a learning experience for everyone. Having taught at the Art League School in Alexandria and elsewhere for 30 years, she could not resist taking the opportunity to talk about why the award paintings were chosen.  

The audience welcomed the opportunity to learn as well.  Co-Chairs Bonnie Ferguson Butler (Founder and President of PSV) and Kathy Waltermire and the Thors cordially invite everyone to come and see the exhibit which runs until Oct. 6.

The winner of Best in Show was Regina Roseman Tune of Richmond for her “River Series: Potomac from Washington’s Birthplace”. First Prize went to Michael McGurk of Palmyra for his “Old Time Music”.  Second Prize was to Kathy Waltermire of Colonial Beach for her “Faraway Places” and Third Prize to Bonnie Ferguson Butler of Lorton for her “Beach Cottages at Sunset, Cape May”.

The Curator’s Award, chosen by gallery owners Carl & Joyce Thor, went to Sarah Schneider of Springfield for “Frijoles Canyon”. As suggested by these titles, there is a wide range of subject matter and styles represented.

Honorable Mentions went to Shirley Buckler (King George), Carol Cullinan (Glen Allen), Jody Holder Richmond), Linda Baughan Norton (Washington DC), and Robin Olivier (Midlothian).

The Pastel Society of Virginia was founded in 2011 by Bonnie Ferguson Butler, a Lorton resident, to promote the medium of pastels and the pastelists who use them.  They can boast over 80 members from across Virginia, DC, and Maryland.  Their website is pastelsocietyofva.org and they have a Facebook page.
