On 21st February 2016 the International Pastel Exhibition was held in Spain. This was a particularly momentous occasion as it was the first time that a group of Chinese pastellists had exhibited their work outside of China. The City’s Councillor of Culture, Roberto Sanchez Ramos opened the ceremony & was joined by the President of ASPAS (Pastel Society of Spain) & a presentation was made by Mr Qui Shuang (President of the Ming Gallery in Suzhou).
The Unison Colour award was won by German Aracil for the wonderful & vivid painting ‘In the Summertime’ which is currently featured in our gallery section. We are sure you will agree that German is a worthy winner.
The exhibition was a great success with 150 paintings by 96 painters from 19 countries & viewed by 7500 visitors.
