The Pastel Society

 

The Pastel Society (PS) is a registered charity, widely recognised for its success in promoting and encouraging the use of pastel within the contemporary art world.

The Society was founded in 1898 and its first exhibition was held in the Royal Institute in Piccadilly.  Founder members and early exhibitors included Brangwyn, Degas, Rodin, Rothenstein, Whistler and G.F.Watts.

There are currently over 50 members who are all professional artists living and working in this country and overseas.  Membership is granted through a strict assessment of technical skill, originality, innovation and enthusiasm.

The Society pursues its aims through education and example.  It is currently responsible for organising exhibitions, tutorial workshops, demonstrations and lectures throughout the UK.

The Society’s Annual Exhibition is open to entries from both members and non-members.  Awards are made for works of particular note. 

Exhibition sponsored by Derwent

Workshops and demonstrations are also provided throughout the exhibition. For workshop information, please contact Norma Stephenson at:
