UKCPS Founder member Gary Theobald, UKCPS, is about to open a new Gallery in 1, Lower Downs Slade, Haverhill, Suffolk CB9 9ED (Tel: 01440 762444). The Gallery will open on Saturday 26th Jan, 2008, and is being run as a joint venture with Photographer David Doughty. It will be open on Monday Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons, and all day Saturdays. As an Award winning Silver Signature status UKCPS member, Gary naturally wants to feature coloured pencil work strongly in the Gallery, and the first show will include works by myself, Peter Woof, and Suzy Herbert as well as Gary himself, and may in future be able to offer Derwent pencils for sale. A further aim will be to feature work of East Anglian artists. Gary will also welcome visitors to view work in progress and chat about his work."Straw Hats", by Gary Theobald, UKCPS
There are very few Galleries in this country that are prepared to give prominence to works in coloured pencil, so I do hope that anyone in the area can get along to the Gallery and show some support, and the Society extends it's best wishes to Gary and his partner for the success of their venture.
