Diversity - an exhibition by three UKCPS members

An exhibition of coloured pencil art by three friends and UKCPS members, Bev Lewis, Diana Connor and Pauline Longley, opens next Friday at the Glastonbury Galleries 10A High Street, Glastonbury
Somerset BA6 9DU.

Each artist has very different interests hence the title of the exhibition.  Both original works (in coloured pencils and other media) and greeting cards will be available to purchase at the gallery.

Bev Lewis is an animal artist and a signature member of UKCPS.  She has won numerous awards for her finely detailed and realistic depiction of wildlife and domestic animals.

Recently she has also become a member of The Wildlife Artists Society International.

Diana Connor has exhibited her work with UKCPS, Bath Society of Botanical Artists, the Society of Floral Painters and at RHS Rosemoor.  She has also held private exhibitions at Westonbirt Arboretum and London.

Diana uses coloured pencil for botanical and animal subjects and acrylics for her abstract works.

Pauline Longley creates realistic coloured pencil portrayals of both animals and people. She has exhibited her work in a number of juried exhibitions including those of the Royal West of England Academy, the Royal Birmingham Society of Art and the UK Coloured Pencil Society.
