CALL FOR ARTISTS

POCHADE VOYAGE: TRAVEL IMPRESSIONS

DESCRIPTION:

With the quickly approaching debut of our newest travel pastel carrier, The Dakota Pochade Box, we are pleased to announce an open call to pastel artists for our very first online juried art competition. The Dakota Pochade Box is our most portable and compact pastel carrier yet, and therefore we have rambling, roaming, and exploration on the mind. Pochade has long been a term associated with mobility and movement. It is derived from the french word for 'pocket'; which references quick, small sketches meant to capture the essence or atmosphere of a scene. With this call for entry we hope to curate an assortment of travel imagery done by our wayfaring customers from distances far and wide . Whether it is your backyard, a distant mountaintop, or a secluded alleyway in Paris; we want to see the places that have inspired you to stop and paint.

 

JUROR:

Teresa Saia is an accomplished pastel artist and Dakota Art Center instructor, whose work is recognized throughout the US and abroad.

PRIZES:

1st Place: Dakota Pochade Box with 84 piece set of Blue Earth Pastels, Dakota Travel Block, Dakota Apron, $100 Dakota Pastels Gift Certificate
