UKCPS 19th Annual Open Exhibition 2020

Due to the current unprecedented circumstances, the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society Annual Open Exhibition 2020 is now taking place online.

See the Online Gallery

This year's exhibition was due to be held at the Nature in Art Gallery in Gloucester with the emphasis on art being created on the theme of 'The Wild World'. This difficult decision has enabled us to make some changes to the exhibition such as adding an 'Open' category. All other aspects and rules of the exhibition will remain the same. This is a juried exhibition. We will be offering cash rewards including Best in Show and the opportunity to earn signature status.

This is an open exhibition; submission is open to all living artists aged 18 or over. All work must be original in concept, design and execution. The artist must demonstrate compositional and drawing skills and the ability to use coloured pencil.
