Every month (or so) we will be featuring an artist from the pastel community in an effort to help show their work to a larger audience. If you would like to submit your work, send 3 of your best and recent works along with a short bio and a link to your website to:

 This month's featured artist is Neva Rossi Smoll.


Born in Laredo, Texas, Neva grew up not far from there in the small ranching town of Hebbronville. Neva’s work is featured in juried exhibitions on National and International levels, including the 16th Annual Pastel 100 Competition where she received an Honorable Mention Award.  Her work has also been featured in the Pastel Society of America’s 2014 Annual Juried Exhibit “Enduring Brilliance” at the National Arts Club in New York, NY and in the prestigious IAPS 2016 Juried Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in New York, NY. Neva was invited to participate in both the First and Second Annual International Contemporary Art Exhibitions, organized and offered by Art Residence Pro Vobis—Assisi, where her paintings were featured in the Sala della Volte in Piazza del Comune, Assisi, Italy and are a part of the permanent collection of the Art Residence Pro Vobis - Assisi.  An award-winning artist in both watercolor and pastel, Neva currently resides in the Coastal Bend Region of Texas.
