Fritz Engelhardt writes this about the formation of the German
Pastel Society (DPG)
and their 1st exhibition.
After attending the International Association of Pastel
Societies Convention in Albuquerque in 2015,
Fritz founded the DPG since there was no pastel association in Germany.
Their goal is to promote the medium of pastel in the visual arts and
in the consciousness of the beholder.
Through information exchange,
competitions, possibly joint exhibitions or workshops DPG
help pastel painting have a greater presence in the arts and the public.
The German Pastel Society now has over 30 members.
under the name of the "German Pastel Society", Fritz also founded an
on Facebook, in which more than 150 pastel painters have
come together with the same goal
and the common idea to help pastel
painting get more attention.
Last year they met in Salzgitter for a
symposium and plein air painting.
This year they were able to open
our 1st exhibition of the German Pastel Society on 16 November 2018.
