Gifted: Pasadena Society of Artists
Holiday Exhibition 2008

December 10 – 27, 2008

Pasadena Society of Artists (PSA) proudly presents 46 gifted artists at VIVA Art Center this holiday season. In this diverse exhibition, you will view over 60 pieces of art in a variety of media and styles, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, sculpture, photography, digital art, figurative, landscape, abstract, traditional and contemporary. The works appearing in this exhibition were selected by a jury of three long-standing members of PSA.

The Pasadena Society of Artists is an organization of professional artists whose purpose is to present to the people of Pasadena and surrounding communities the works of its most talented and creative inhabitants. Founded in 1925, the Pasadena Society of Artists is one of the oldest organized professional groups working in this area. The Society is noted for a vigorous, active membership with a wide diversity of statement and high professional standards. PSA was founded at a time when Southern California was beginning to produce indigenous art which has evolved into the varied and vital work being created today. We are proud to be a part of that artistic growth and are dedicated to keeping this tradition alive.
