Promoting soft pastels


Welcome to the Ozark Pastel Society web page! We are a group of artists based in Northwest Arkansas, with members from the surrounding states. We work in soft pastels and promote the medium through exhibits, workshops and demonstrations.


We welcome new members. We meet four times a year, our dues are $25 per year, and OPS members receive our email newsletter and discounts on OPS sponsored shows. 


For more information about OPS just email an inquiry and we’ll reply as soon as possible.


Thank you for visiting and enjoying our pastel art!  We'd love to have you join us for our meetings too.
