Urania Christy TarbelMark your calendars for Sunday, March 23 at 1:00 p.m. at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane in El Dorado Hills for a special art occasion. After a brief business meeting, there will be a pastel demonstration and lecture by Urania Christy Tarbet on the joy of painting and teaching art workshops in the mist of Claude Monet’s beautiful garden.

The public is welcome to attend free of charge.

Tarbet, accomplished and award-winning pastel artist, teacher and author resides in Pollock Pines. She attended the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles and the Sergei Bongart School of Art.

She was influenced by the French Impressionists and by her famous artist cousin, Howard Chandler Christy, whose work hangs in the White House, the U.S. Capitol and the Smithsonian.

She is noted for her landscapes, floral studies and portraits, both in pastel and oil.

Besides being an avid and prolific artist, Tarbet’s lengthy and rich résumé includes founder of The International Association of Pastel Societies (1994), and president emeritus of IAPS. She is a member of the IAPS Master Circle and is listed in Who’s Who of American Art.

She is a signature life member of the Pastel Society of America and serves on the advisory board of the Pastel Journal Magazine.

Through the years Tarbet has exhibited her pastel paintings and conducted extensive workshops throughout the United States, Canada, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Mexico and Scotland.

She has authored numerous magazine articles on art that have appeared in such publications as “Pastel Artist International,” “American Artist,” “Pastel Journal,” “Artist Magazine” and “Art Revue.”

Her art has been included in 12 how-to art instructional books and her first book, “Dare To Dream”— an inspirational book on the founding of IAPS contains an autobiography of her childhood in a Kentucky orphanage after the death of her father and her eventual reunion with her mother in Pittsburgh, Pa. and later her move to California.

The book also contains Art Tips and Testimonials from her studio, along with the pastel paintings of more than 50 artists that have been inspired by her and the current renaissance of the luminous medium of pastel.
