Pastel artist to give presentation for Tahoe Art League

Provided to the TribunePastel painter Margot Schulzke will be the presenter at the Tahoe Art League's meeting on Wednesday.

Painter Margot Schulzke will be the guest presenter at the Tahoe Art League’s Wednesday, Sept. 9, meeting.

A longtime columnist for The Pastel Journal, Schulzke is widely regarded as an authority on the subject of composition and design. Her book, “A Painter’s Guide to Design and Composition” (Northlight), was released in February 2006.

The Pastel Society of the West Coast has ranked her as a Distinguished Pastelist since 1988, an honor extended to only 26 of PSWC’s approximately 400 members. In April 2006, the society named Schulzke as the fourth artist to receive the PSWC Pastel Laureate Award.

She is the subject of a feature article written by Christine Proskow in December 2008 in The Pastel Journal. Schulzke’s work has been featured in a number of other books and articles.

Schulzke has exhibited in national competitions and museums coast to coast. Among the competitive venues are the Salmagundi Club and the National Arts Club, both in New York City. She was also represented in the 2007 Pastels USA Inter-national Exhibition at the Sacramento Fine Arts Center as a member of PSWC’s Hall of Fame.

Schulzke’s work was included in 2007 in “Kaleidoscope,” an invitational exhibit at PlacerARTS in Auburn, which included 20 of Northern California’s top pastel artists.

The week of Sept. 27, Schulzke will be giving a five-day oil and pastel workshop in Hope Valley. More information is available on her Web site,

The Tahoe Art League meets the second Wednesday of the month, from 7-9 p.m., at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Guests are welcome.

Coming up on Oct. 14 and 15 is the 2009 TAL Art Expo at Edgewood. For more information, visit
