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 nearly 190 members from 34 countries, mostly from Europe, but also from overseas.
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, with the next one planned for September 2023.
PGE is proud to be a member of IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies).
