The Colored Pencil Gallery of the Akron-Summit Public Library has showcased the renderings of area artists using colored pencil since 1999. 

Our website has represented many of the same artists over the years and no work has been deleted.   However, the eleven women who make up the Main Street Lesson Center Drawing Group (center column) remain working artists and continue to add images of their recent work to this website. 

We hope that you enjoy our work but please remember that all concepts and renderings are the property of the artist and may not be copied without the artist's permission.  If you would like permission to use an artist's work or to contact them, please use the link found on their page.  Most would be happy to sell reproductions in the form of greeting cards or giclees if you are interested.


Artists Represented through 2010
Our Artists' Participation in
CPSA Exhibitions

From 1995 - 2004 artists displayed their work online as members of the Canton district chapter of the Colored Pencil Society of America and later as members of the Ohio Colored Pencil Alliance.  The artwork  is shown both in individual gallery pages as well as grouped by acceptances into juried colored pencil competitions. The individual pages and show participation on this website represent only those artists listed below during the time that they were members of CPSA and had a local colored pencil affiliation.

Sorry, but due our server no longer accepting Microsoft Front Page and my health status, 2010 represents the end of my ability to keep the archives up to date for the Ohio group. --Laurene
