City Gallery Features Colored Pencil Society Works May 22-June 29
People often express wonder when they see the amazing work of the artists of the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA). Images done in this medium aren’t expected to look so realistic, but some actually resemble photographs in their gentle, precise rendering.
The public is invited to view a mixture of the artists’ work by the Detroit Chapter at the Farmington Hills City Gallery, beginning May 22 and running through June 29. An open reception to meet the artists will be held on Thursday, May 31 from 7 to 9 p.m. The City Gallery is located in the Costick Center, 28600 W. Eleven Mile Road, and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and during special events.
The CPSA began with the National Organization and established a network of active District Chapters throughout the United States. It is an international organization comprised of more than 1,700 artists in 11 countries. Locally, District Chapters provide additional networking, local and regional exhibitions, workshops, educational, and marketing opportunities. The Detroit Chapter, founded in 1993, welcomes any artist 18 years and older who enjoys working in colored pencil to become a member. The Chapter publishes a bi-monthly newsletter titled Drawing Together.
