Pastel virtuosos Barbara Benedeti Newton and Randena Walsh will show a group of new works at Jeffrey Moose Gallery, 1333 5th Ave, Rainier Square, Seattle, WA, from September 5th through October 21st. A reception for the artists will be held on Thursday, Sept 7th from 5:30 to 7:30.

Barbara Benedeti Newton is not only a pastel specialist but a published authority on the medium of colored pencil, an instructor at the Frye Museum and a multiple award-winner. Her precision , photo-realist approach to colored pencil is constrasted with her more expressionist, gestural style as a pastel artist. Barbara's subject matter stays close to her vacation home in the Alder-lined riverbanks of the south Puget Sound.

Randena Walsh grew up on a beach near Bremerton and has a close relationship to many of her land-subjects; most of her imagery depicts places on the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. Her style is looser than that of Ms. Newton and she often employs daring color substitutions. A member of the Northwest Pastel Society, a Native Plant Society and her local chapter of the National Audobon Society, she is committed to to her professional career and to protecting and learning about the environment.
