“There’s nothing as inspiring as looking at this exhibition and seeing what can be achieved; I hope you enjoy it!”  - Griff Rhys Jones

Featuring works created in pastel, pencil, chalk and charcoal, The Pastel Society is recognised as foremost in its field, a magnet for brilliant exponents of the pastel medium showing the work of leading contemporary artists as well as encouraging work by new artists yet to be established. Artists use the medium for its vibrant colour, vitality and immediacy. Visitors can be confident of seeing a variety of approaches.

We look forward to opening the exhibition in the gallery once the current restrictions allow.
