David Francis, Matthew Kestner & Corey Pitkin / The Pastelists
The Pastelists of 1910 formed in New York City from the desire of pastel artists to present personal work not bound to the expectations of the conservative arts organizations of the era. That organization only lasted five years….
This new Pastelists Studio was founded in 2020 with the ribbon cutting of the Sandy Hill Arts Center in Hudson Falls, NY. With award winning pastel artists David Francis, Matthew Kestner and Corey Pitkin resurrected the revolutionary spirit of the Pastelists with a similar, yet contradictory, ideal; to create a platform for representational pastel painting in an art world that now largely favors modern art.
We look forward to many years of this groups successes.
