The Birmingham and Midland Pastel Society group exhibition ‘BOUNDARIES’ features the work of twenty artists from the society. The society was founded by Waveney Fredrick, Alex Jackson and Gordon Yapp in the hope of providing a platform for artists working in pastel. There are no members of the society, only exhibitors. Since establishing the committee in 1982, they have exhibited in venues across the midlands.
The exhibition shows a staggering range of technique under the theme Boundaries. The theme was put forward in a committee meeting as a means of giving focus to the exhibition beyond the limitations imposed by their medium. It is the first time the society have given a theme to their exhibition. And they believe it is a subject that could be widely interpreted by artist and viewer.
The exhibition which runs in our Small and Large Gallery shows work by: Hazel Astling, Paul Bartlett, Patricia Beach, Meryl Blake, Malcolm Brookes, Sally Brookes, Lesley Connolly, Sylvie Dattas, Jan Gay, Mary Griffin, John Hodgkins, Pat Landon, Ursala Newell-Walker, Patrick Penrose, Joanne, Powell, Colin Simmonds, Claire Spencer, David Spurrier, Jan Summerfield and Vera Turner.
BOUNDARIES runs 1st June - 31st July 2017.
