Ilkley Art Show 2018

Ilkley Art Show 2018

By Cath Inglis

16th August, 2018

I had been delighted to have been asked to demonstrate & promote my very favourite pastels UNISON (what else!)  I have been using these since I first discovered them in the Skipton Art Shop in approx 1988 ,my goodness showing my age now.

I have been using them ever since – nothing compares with these lovely,  buttery pastels. I have been spreading their virtues too since I started demonstrating and  teaching pastels to aspiring artist about 20 years ago!

Anyway, it was a great arty event with lots of artists demonstrating their work in their chosen  mediums.  Selected artists  were delivering workshops to budding artists too in a variety of subjects  and mediums – all very inspiring.

Lots of trade stands from leading art material suppliers with most stands featuring an  artist demonstrating and some  with a hands on experience  to try out their materials .   There was also an art exhibition in the main hall and a nice cafe serving coffee and cakes!

Lots of visitors were coming through the door and spending time to take a look at the various demos.   I had decided to work on the head of a hare – one of my favourite subjects that always catches the eye.  Spent lots of time chatting to artists and explaining the different techniques that I use with  Unison pastels as well as tempting them with  pastel sets fully stocked drawer cabinet of pastels  ( sweeties to the eye) on the stand!

Thanks to Tim and his staff at Ilkley Art Shop for a great day.
