ABOUT PGE

Connecting pastel artists in Europe and worldwide

The Pastel Guild of Europe PGE was founded by European pastel artists in 2009 with the purpose of strengthening connections and friendships between artists across Europe, to inform, enjoy and delight in the beautiful artist’s medium of pastel, and to be a support and resource for artists and groups of artists.  
PGE currently has 160 members from more than 30 countries, mostly from Europe, but also from all around the world.

Although PGE is internet-based, we try to make real-life encounters between members possible. In the past years we organized several painting weekends and workshops in Germany, Finland and the Netherlands and plan to do so in the future.

PGE is proud to be a member of IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies).
