Alan Flatmann pastel workshop at Barnwell on Sun, June 8, 2 to 4 pm; no charge

Alan Flattmann, celebrated pastel artist of New Orleans, will give a free demonstration on Sun, June 8, at the Barnwell Center, says Freda Powell.

The demonstration will last from 2 to 4 pm and refreshments will be served.

Spanning a career of over 4 decades, Alan Flattmann is recognized as one of America's most outstanding and gifted artists, says his web site. He was inducted into The Pastel Society of America’s “Hall of Fame” in 2006 and awarded the PSA Master Pastelist distinction in 1991.

In conjunction with the publication of the book, “Alan Flattmann’s French Quarter Impressions”, the mayor of New Orleans, C. Ray Nagin, officially proclaimed September 28, 2002 as Alan Flattmann Day in recognition of 25 years of success painting in the French Quarter.
