The Pasadena Society of Artists said Friday it will present a new edition of its Artist’s Choice Exhibition starting on Friday, September 30 at Whites Fine Art Gallery located at 2414 Honolulu Avenue in Montrose, California. It will be a labor of love, passion, creativity, and uniqueness (and commerce, too, because all the artwork will be available for purchase).

Artwork in this exhibition has been created or selected by the artist and many are new works not previously seen by the public. Exhibition Chair Tom Oldfield says, “The PSA Artists Choice Exhibit is our version of a creative/artistic free-for-all.  This is an exhibit where the members can push their creative envelope and submit work that they might not submit for a juried exhibition.  This may be work of a different style or creative medium.  Whatever it is, this is our opportunity to show work that we are proud of that would not be in a typical exhibit.  Take your time and enjoy the art.”

The exhibition closes on Saturday, October 29. Concurrently the exhibition can be viewed at ISSUU.com or the PSA website: www.PasadenaSocietyofArtists.org. A printed catalog will be available for purchase.

PSA has been presenting Artist’s Choice exhibitions since 2009. This is the 9th exhibition in this ongoing series. 

Forty-two members are exhibiting 73 artworks. Media includes oil, acrylic, ceramics, pen and ink, collage, watercolor, traditional and digital photography, encaustic, etching, aquatint, mixed media, digital art, graphite, colored pencil, and pastel.

PSA is a non-profit organization whose mission is to present the works of its many talented and creative artists to the community of Pasadena and surrounding areas.  Combining an active tradition of community participation and partnering with local community arts organizations, as well as philanthropic, humanitarian, and educational institutions, PSA endeavors to enhance public awareness of art and the enriching qualities it brings to our lives.
