For our first exhibition of 2018, we are delighted to be showing together the four artists known collectively as the ‘Scottish Colourists' – SJ Peploe, JD Fergusson, FCB Cadell and Leslie Hunter – for the first time in the West Midlands. The Scottish Colourists, responding to the revolutionary impact of French art in the early 20th century, produced some of the most vibrant images of their day. Their cityscapes, still lifes and landscapes reveal a preoccupation with light, rhythm – and, of course, colour.

For more on the exhibition and related events, look out for our exhibition e-newsletter, coming soon.

The UK Coloured Pencil Society was founded in 2001 with three main aims in mind - to promote excellence in coloured pencils as a fine art medium, to support UK based artists who use coloured pencils, in any genre and to educate artists, and the public in general, about coloured pencils. It has enabled professional coloured pencil artists to promote their artistry within this specialisation and share their expertise with amateur members.
