We are ending our contract with our old web host. As of July, 15 this website will no longer exist. High time for those members who haven't reregistered with PGE or signed up to the website to move!

New website: pastelguildofeurope.org



You have all received several emails during the last weeks about the brand-new PGE website. The test phase has now ended and we are moving. The June Get Dusty will already be held on the new website. An upload on this website is no longer possible. All entries have to be uploaded at pastelguildofeurope.org.

All members who haven't re-registered yet and signed up for the new website should do so. 


This month’s category is still life, the challenge is ‚A still life with tools‘. Have a rummage in your kitchen drawers, your garden shed or your toolbox and see what you can find. You may combine your choice of a tool or tools with other objects, but the tools must be the centre of interest.

As usual, every member may enter up to two paintings. Deadline is May 25.

Please consult the Get Dusty rules before you upload. Happy painting!
