Online Exhibition

Exhibition Dates
February 1, 2012 through
January 31, 2013



Beginning in 2009, the CPSA Explore This! exhibition became a juried online show. This change was made with the hope of allowing artists to display their work to a broader audience. By encouraging the exploration of materials we hope all artists, colored pencil artists or not, will be inspired to enter their artwork in this exhibition.

Explore This! will be held annually and acceptance into three shows within a 10-year period will earn a new signature designation, called CPX, for the artist. The winners of the top three awards will be invited to send their pieces for display in the CPSA International Exhibition for that year. In addition, a full-color issue of To The Point will showcase the accepted entries.

This show for 2012 garnered 12 awards totaling over $8000. We extend our congratulations to the honored artists, and also our thanks to the contributors of the awards.

The CPSA announces its exhibitions on the website ( and on its blog,

Please enjoy the exhibition. If you are interested in purchasing any of the available artworks, please contact Exhibition Director Paula Parks and she will put you in touch with the artist.
