The Pastel Society of New Mexico was founded in 1989 by a small group of New Mexican artists who wanted to share the wonderful world of pastels with others.

Monthly meetings are held from 10 am - 12 noon in the auditorium of the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, which is located at the southwest corner of Mountain Road and 19th Street NW. They are free and open to the public, so if you are interested in learning more about pastel and PSNM, you are invited to attend as a guest.

Click on any of the topics listed at the left to learn more about PSNM and about pastel painting in general.

Enjoy your visit!
