On Monday 20th February the Unison Colour contingent of Dan Hersey (Manager) & Helen Bullock (Marketing Manager) boarded the train from Newcastle to London. On the way down, discussions began as to what we would expect, who was exhibiting & what if we couldnt pick a winner for the two awards we were giving.
We arrived into London to a beautiful Spring like day & made our way to the Mall Galleries, as soon as I walked in my eyes were immediately drawn to Matthew Draper's beautiful dark & distinctive paintings (he uses Unison Colour pastels!).
After walking around & feeling quite overwhelmed at the amount & quality of art that we needed to choose from, Dan & I had made our decision.
- Unison Colour Product Prize was awarded to Jennifer Thorpe with 'Luminosity
- Unison Colour Young Pastellist Award - Rachel Salini
Well done to both artists, very well deserved prize winners.
