Juried into UKCPS 9th Annual UKCPS International Open Exhibition

Along with 65 other artists, I've had work juried into the UKCPS 9th Annual UKCPS International Open Exhibition 2010 of 100% coloured pencil artwork by coloured pencil artists.

Altogether the exhibition will comprise 106 entries from 66 artists from the UK, Hungary, Israel, Netherlands, Pakistan, Spain and USA.  You can see the names of the artists and the titles of all the accepted works below.

You can see my work which has been juried in below too.  I entered two works (Prelude and Not Quite White)  and they both got in.  What's really great is that they are both already framed and I don't need to do anything!

Incidentally, the images on this blog are tiny versions of the 25MB TIFF images which I submitted for selection.
