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.
The Pastel Society 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 the first exhibition 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 fifty-five Members who are 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.
