Since 2019, Central Mass Pastel Society has worked to bring the joy, satisfaction, and inspiration of fine art to its members and the public through a wide-ranging program of exhibitions, learning activities, and community engagement. In 2022, we offered free online demos and artist talks, online and in-person workshops, a Members’ show, and our first in-person National pastel exhibition. We have also created a new identity, website, and membership system that has improved communication and visibility, and facilitated all our activities for greater convenience and accessibility.

As we enter our 5th year, we seek to sustain and increase our services and programming to you, and to continue to nurture the unique sense of connection and community that the arts can foster. Your support can help in innumerable ways. For example, here are some of our regular programming costs that your contribution in any amount can help defer. Donations of $10 or more add up quickly and we are grateful for them all:

  • communications and administrative expenses (example: $10-60 for photocopying, postage, miscellaneous printing)
  • scholarships for a student or developing artist (example: $125 for a workshop scholarship)
  • juror fees for exhibitions (example: $150 contributes to juror fees)
  • artist talks and demonstrations (example: $150 for an artist talk so that we can offer it free to all members)
  • venues for workshops and community events (example: $250 for a hall rental for a workshop)
  • awards for our exhibitions (example: $75-100 for a small award or $500+ for a major award)
  • exhibition venue fees (example: $650 contributes to an exhibition venue)

Please support us as you are able, in any timeframe that works for you--once, monthly, quarterly, annually. Your contribution is tax-deductible, and greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a named contribution (e.g, for an award), or become a named individual or business sponsor of CMPS, please contact In the form below, please use the Comments box as needed to let us know if you would like to specify your gift be applied to a particular expense, or if you wish your donation to be anonymous.
