The Pastel Society, UK, was founded in 1898, and some of the first members and early exhibitors were Brangwyn, Degas, Rodin, Rothenstein, Whistler and G.F. Watts. There are currently over fifty members who are professional artists living and working in UK and elsewhere. The Society pursues its aims through education and example. It is currently responsible for organising exhibitions, tutorial workshops, demonstrations and lectures throughout the UK.
The Society’s major showcase is the Annual Exhibition held at the prestigious Mall Galleries in London. This is open to entries from both members and non-members. This year’s exhibition is opened at the Mall Galleries though April 17, with the total number of 278 paintings on display. It is not clear from the website who are the winners, but there was a news on the Pastel Journal blog mentioning the prize winning artists: Matt Draper, Jeannette Hayes, and Felicity House.
