Together with The Pastel Society’s popular mix of contemporary and traditional work created using a diverse range of dry media, this year’s exhibition will also include exciting new work by artists competing for the valuable Zsuzsi Roboz Award. This NEW £5,000 prize is to be awarded for an outstanding work created by an artist under the age of 35 years.

Each year works by member artists and those selected from the open submission push the media to its limits, delighting visitors to the exhibition and presenting wonderful buying opportunities for home or office.

This year there are even more reasons to visit this hugely popular exhibition.
