We attended the Private View of A Celebration of Creative Art
the UK Coloured Pencil Society’s 10th Annual Open Exhibition on Sunday evening in Westminster. The large exhibition of work by members of the society in a variety of styles was grouped mostly by subject and contained some impressive work. We both particularly liked Amber Halsall’s Going, Going, Gone a botanical treatment of a tree trunk with three stages of beautifully peeling bark.
There was also a “have a go” area for trying some drawing, reproduction prints for sale and in a silent auction, books and materials for sale, and a display of pencils and the company history from Faber-Castell a sponsor of the exhibition. During the rest of the exhibition there will be a large selection of workshops from well-known artists. The exhibition and workshops continue until October 1st.
Here are two quick snaps we took:
