NIPS Members Honor Founder at 10th Anniversary Exhibition Reception

BobWms&CathyMcCormickNIPS founder Catherine McCormick was surprised by the gift of her portrait, created by artist and NIPS member Robert Ray Williams, in honor of Cathy’s dedication in promoting an awareness and appreciation of the pastel medium. Cathy founded the Northern Indiana Pastel Society and has served as president since 2006. The portrait, along with a collection of member’s written tributes to Cathy, were presented at the reception on June 6 for the 10th Anniversary Members’ Exhibition currently on display at the South Bend Museum of Art.
