colored pencils save the world

An art exhibition enlivened the auditorium we visited yesterday. The displayed works hailed from the Colored Pencil Society of America. I enjoyed seeing the varied set of works, as each artist produced an image seemingly beyond the limited power of the colored pencil. A sign explained that a variety of techniques ranging from layering colors to physically impacting the canvas helped to achieve the different effects.

Aesthetic notions about art vary--representation, abstraction, symbolism, naturalism, determinism, and so on The various terms hold limited interest for me. Yet it makes me more hopeful for the state of the world to know that a few thousand artists banded together to create a society devoted to creating colored pencil art.
