Welcome to the Colored Pencil Gallery

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 their work has not been deleted or updated.   However, the members of the Main Street Lesson Center Drawing Group continue to add new work to this website.  Those artists are listed in the top portion of the page below.  Historical information on individuals and group participation can be found under the black headline area of the page beneath.

We hope that you enjoy our work but please remember that all concepts and drawings 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 or contact the webmaster.
