Daytona Beach, Florida – The Colored Pencil Society of America is pleased to present the 22nd

Annual International Exhibition of fine artworks in colored pencil. This juried exhibition of over

120 works of fine art will be on display at the Ormond Memorial Art Museum June 13th through

August 25th, 2014. Cash awards totaling approximately $15,000 will be given at the CPSA

awards banquet on Friday, August 1st. An artists’ reception will be held at the Ormond

Memorial Art Museum on Saturday, August 2nd from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m. The public is

welcome daily to tour the exhibition at no charge, though a donation of $2 is welcome. There is

no charge for the artists’ reception.

This year’s juror is John Bunker, former director of the Jacksonville Art Museum. Mr. Bunker is

a graduate of the Smithsonian Institution’s Fundamentals of Museum Management and the J.P.

Getty’s Museum Management Institute at UC Berkeley. He has been an active volunteer in the

community of Jacksonville, serving the arts as president of the Riverside Fine Arts Association

Concert Board, chairman of the Koger Gallery of Art and Gardens Advisory Committee, and

curator of the Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission, to mention a few. Mr.

Bunker’s own artwork has a focus on subjects found in nature, from the figurative to still life of

fruit or seashells, to landscapes filled with trees and flowers in full bloom.

The Colored Pencil Society of America was founded in 1990 by Vera Curnow, whose vision was

to develop a society focused on colored pencil as a fine art medium. CPSA also tests the

lightfastness of artist-grade colored pencils to determine their longevity for works of fine art.

CPSA holds two juried exhibitions annually: the international exhibition which is held at

different galleries within the United States each summer and the Explore This! virtual exhibition

which is currently online at the CPSA website through January 31, 2015. In addition, the society

presents occasional unjuried online shows called ArtSpectations—the next will be open for

submissions this May.

Visitors to the CPSA international exhibitions are sure to be amazed at the range of work created

using 100% colored pencil. The medium is extremely diverse, offering artists many different

techniques for applying the medium. In the hands of a talented artist, colored pencil artwork can

range from the photo-realistic to the abstract and can resemble anything from oil paint and

watercolor to pastels and gouache.
