Clevedon Art Club Exhibition

UKCPS stalwarts, Bev Lewis and Pauline Longley, have been busy again!!

This comes from Pauline:

I was thrilled to find that both Bev and I have had 4 pictures each juried in to the Clevedon Art Club Open Exhibition. It was also good to see another coloured pencil picture in the exhibition from a none UKCPS member.

The exhibition is on until 24th September and is really worth a visit. Details can be found


Congratulations also to Jenny Campbell who also has two pictures accepted!

and -- the exhibition actually ends on 24th August - NOT September!

This comes from Roy Lorrain-Smith over in West Yorkshire:

Our local group is holding an exhibition in Baildon Public Library from 23 September to 5 October.  (For those who don't know, Bailden is located just to the north of Bradford )
Opening times
9.30am - 5.30pm
9.30am - 1.00pm
9.30am - 7.00pm
9.30am - 5.30pm
9.30am - 4.00pm
Baildon Library
BD17 6ND
We’re a cheerful group, meeting in a pleasant room, with about a dozen members on the books, though not all come to every meeting. Mostly we do our own thing, with much sharing and discussion of the pencillers world. There is wide variation of style and experience, with newcomers made very welcome. The rule is: if you want to know, ask; and if you’re asked, tell. This is our first exhibition.

Contact Roy for further information about the group:
