Featuring works created in pastel, pencil, chalk and charcoal, the Pastel Society exhibits abstract and experimental works alongside traditional representation. The artists, including elected members of the Society and those chosen from open submission, all share a passion for working in dry media.
Member artists will be demonstrating their working processes as part of the exhibition and workshops in various aspects of working with pastels will also be available.
“Pastels are the most exciting of all the mediums. What better than to grab a small piece of chalk and make an immediate blast of colour. No mixing, no fiddling around with Flow Improvers or Slow Drying mediums, no brushes to keep clean. Just pure colour at your fingertips.” Cheryl Culver, President of the Pastel Society
