Every fall, as close to October as possible, the Pencil Art Society promotes pencil art and supports *artists worldwide who work in our recognized and accepted pencil media by hosting an International Open Juried Exhibition. This gallery exhibition is open to both PAS members and non-members alike and, unlike our Online Member Exhibitions, is exclusively for works done in 100% pencil media.
The Annual PAS Pencil Power Conference, featuring an Artists’ Meet & Greet, our Annual General Meeting, Workshops and, of course, an Artists’ Reception and Awards Ceremony, is held in conjunction with our International Open Juried Exhibition. All the award winning works are archived annually in online galleries, which shall remain available for viewing on our website indefinitely.
Acceptance into five International Open Juried Exhibitions earns the signature title of PAS, which entitles the artist to add PAS after his or her name. PAS membership must be maintained and not allowed to lapse in order to maintain PAS Signature Status.
