Pastel Society Exhibition at The Thompson's Gallery Aldeburgh

Thompson’s Gallery in Aldeburgh is holding its 3rd exhibition by selected members of The Pastel Society which opens on Saturday 31st March until Saturday 21st April 2018.

The Pastel Society UK is a registered charity and is recognised for promoting and encouraging the use of pastels within the contemporary art world. Founded in London in 1898 it started with 77 members and among founding members, past members and exhibitors are such names as Sickert, Whistler, Degas, Rodin, Dame Laura Knight, Dame Paula Rego, Tom Phillips and Gillian Ayres.

The exhibition will showcase works created in pastel, pencil, chalk and charcoal and reflects that the diverse nature of the dry medium is limitless. The elected Members of The Pastel Society chosen to be part of this wonderful exhibition all share a passion for working in dry media and we feel working in pastel promotes a particularly aesthetic approach.
