Kate Clarke wins Best in Show in UKCPS Annual Exhibition

Derwent Award for Best in Show (£400)
UKCPS Annual Open International Exhibition 2009
Old -Timers, One, Two, Free! by Kate Clarke
3x(39x26) cm, coloured pencils (£845)
Kate Clarke has won the Derwent Best in Show Award at the 8th Annual Open International Exhibition 2009 of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society (UKCPS) which opened to the public at the RBSA Gallery in Birmingham today.

Images and details of all those winning prizes can now be found in UKCPS Annual exhibition 2009 - Award Winners on the UKCPS News blog. Those works which were highly commended will be posted tomorrow.

Kate Clarke has produced very different sorts of portraits in consecutive years. Her winning work is a triptych and a portrait of a lady with Alzheimers Disease. The drawing of the lady's head includes phrases associated with her life running through her hair - and the triptych very effectively illustrates the progression of this condition. Well done Kate!

The exhibition includes two of my works which you can also see here - Signature membership

The exhibition continues until 3rd October.
