    In 2001 Dale Martin was recognized as a 'Master' by the Pastel Society of America. No more than eighty artists in its' long history have lived to attain this honor. It is simply the highest recognition that one might achieve in his chosen medium. Similar acknowledgement has been given to Dale by the Pastel Society of the West Coast, the Knickerbocker Artists, APOW and other distinguished organizations. He paints prolifically, on location and in his studio, to create magnificent landscapes, still lifes and virtually all that he may see.

     Among Dale's numerous awards are the Sennelier and the Art Times Awards from the Pastel Society of America, the Eileen McCarthy Award from the Salmagundi Club, and the Board of Directors' Award from Pastel Society of the West Coast. His paintings have been published in Southwest Art, Oklahoma Today, in 200 Great Painting Ideas for Artists and other prominent magazines. They can be found in many private and corporate collections, including those of The State of New Mexico Art in Public Places Project, General Motors, IBM, Oklahoma Natural Gas, and Northwestern University, Chicago. Dale has, in short, invested his life as an artist.
