An Exploration in Pastels and Mixed Media

South Coast Pastel Society’s summer art exhibition will be held from 21 to 30 January 2022. Members of the society have been busy creating a broad range of paintings throughout the lockdown and enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to get out and paint following the easing of restrictions. This years’ exhibition promises to deliver stunning landscapes, majestic seascapes and thought-provoking still-life works that will hang in pride of place on any wall. Whilst there will be lots of pastel works, the exhibition will also include acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media pieces to suit all tastes. All works will be for sale and range in price to suit most budgets. The exhibition will be at the Batemans Bay Surf Club, George Bass Drive, Malua Bay and opens from 10am to 4pm each day. Entry is by gold coin donation with the proceeds going to the Surf Club.

The South Coast Pastel Society is a vibrant group of local and regional artists working mainly in pastel – a pure pigment media with centuries of tradition that is just as fresh and relevant today. The SCPS has been organising quality exhibitions and activities since the 1980’s and offers regular, world class workshops with renowned local, national and international pastel artists. More information about the society, workshops and painting activities can be found on the society’s web site at There is also a gallery featuring society member’s works that highlight both the versatility of the medium and the high quality work that can be achieved with pastels.
