The Ormond Memorial Art Museum will host the Colored Pencil Society of America's Annual International Exhibition June 13 to Aug. 25.
The work of more than 120 artists -- all done in colored pencil -- has been selected for the show. Awards totaling more than $15,000 will be distributed.
The CPSA was founded in 1990 and is dedicated to artists older than 18 years of age working with colored pencil. It now boasts almost 1,600 artists, representing 12 countries and has 24 District Chapters throughout the United States, including St. Augustine, Fort Lauderdale and Gainesville.
CPSA provides a communication network for artists as well as educational opportunities including the annual international conference. The exhibition is in conjunction with the group's annual educational conference. More than 150 artists are registered to attend the 22nd annual event July 29 - Aug. 2 in Daytona Beach. The convention is open to members and potential new members of the CPSA who have preregistered.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and from noon to 4 p.m. on weekends. Surrounding gardens featuring architectural tributes to veterans are open until sunset daily.
