The Pastel Society of South Carolina is a not-for-profit organization whose objectives are to promote public awareness of pastel as a fine art medium, provide educational programs for its members and other interested parties and opportunities for them to exhibit their work and unite pastel artists to bring about recognition of their work. The Pastel Society of South Carolina meets every other month at The Gibbes Museum of Art.
