10th Open Exhibition - List of successful artists

The following is the list of successful artists for 10th UKCPS exhibition. The more discerning of you will note that your Blogmaster's name does not appear in the list, thereby proving that membership of the society Exec. does not guarantee an entry if your work does not meet the standard of art required by our three Judges.  I shall immediately retire to the countryside, cut off my ear, and tell everyone I meet that nobody understands me!

Congratulations everyone!!

Marion Brown - Lymington Open Art Exhibition

UKCPS member, Marion Brown has had her 5" x 7" still life picture 'Fruit Salad' [SEE RIGHT]accepted by the Lymington Open Art Exhibition at St Barbe's Museum & Art Gallery.
  Marion is very pleased because the exhibition, which is on until 21 August, was juried, and, as far as she is aware, hers is the only CP work to be accepted.  One of  her pictures was accepted in the same exhibition last year, and was sold. 

Alan Jones & a NEWA follow-up

I finally managed to get to view the NEWA exhibition today.  As usual the standard of entries is very high, and I was therefore pleased to see the number of CP works entered, - and selling!.  I counted thirteen enties if you include a couple of CP + pastel works.
Well done to UKCPS member, Alan Jones, for getting three entries in, and for getting one of them actually printed into the catalogue!
You can view the full exhibition online via:

Jo Goudie at NEWA

[See my previous Post]  I still haven't had a chance to get to the Gordale Garden Centre to view the exhibition, but UKCPS Silver member, Jo Goudie, has written to say that two of  her CP works (shown on the right) are also on show at the NEWA Exhibition.

Well done to you, Jo

If any other members have works on show, either at NEWA or any other exhibition, please let me know by email [] and if possible enclose a thumbnail of the picture/s.
