Maryland Pastel Society

People's Choice Award

Dear Friends of the Maryland Pastel Society,

The Member's Only Exhibition closed today at the Ratner Museum in Bethesda. This year we began a new tradition of offering a People's Choice Award. The nomination box was available to receive nominations until the close of the show. The MPS Board is most pleased to report that the votes have been tallied and the winner of this special award is Maria Marino, for her painting entitled, "A La Maison".

"The People", selected a beautiful piece. Congratulations Maria!

Sincerely,
Jean Hirons, Deborah Maklowski, Lisa Sheppard, Joyce Lister, Barbara Steinacker, Linda Light, Lisa Mitchell and Dawn Capron
