The Pastel Society Annual Exhibition, in January 2024, is a celebration of the Society's 125th Anniversary.
This milestone exhibition presents a positive challenge to those with pre-conceived ideas about pastels. Expect a vibrant, adventurous and creative show, which will open hearts and minds to this special medium.
To mark the occasion, two new prizes will be presented: The Tom Coates Memorial Prize, worth £2,000, and The President's Prize for a young artist.
Exhibitors will include established and recently elected member artists, alongside accomplished non-members selected from an international open call. As well as the many pastel paintings on display, there will be a myriad of works using other dry media: charcoal, conte, graphite, and coloured pencils.
