UKCPS - new signature members

A view of part of the UKCPS 8th Annual Exhibition

On the UKCPS website, the initials UKCPS after a member's name indicates that an artist has achieved signature status as a member of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society. This means that they have had their artwork exhibited in three exhibitions within a five year period. (Note - the colour is normally only used on the UKCPS website to denote the status of different members exhibiting)

However once you've achieved signature status there are other levels to aspire to!
  • UKCPS indicate Silver Signature status - pictures accepted in 5 exhibitions in 10 years
  • UKCPS indicates Gold Signature status - pictures accepted in 10 exhibitions in 15 years.
As UKCPS is now on its eighth exhibition, it now has some silver signature status members - (however obviously nobody has yet achieved Gold signature status)!

This year there are 7 new signature members and 3 members who have achieved silver signature status.
