Derwent Announces Pastel Society Sponsorship

Artists’ brand hopes three-year deal will promote the work of pastel creatives

Derwent has proudly revealed a three-year sponsorship with the Pastel Society, as former MP Ann Widdecombe opened its annual exhibition.

The renowned artists’ brand hopes its collaboration with the society, which exhibits every year at London’s Mall Galleries, will help to promote the work of pastel artists across the world.

The Pastel Society was founded in 1898 and works as a charity to encourage the use of pastels as a medium in the contemporary art world.

Derwent’s Marketing Manager, Astri Saunders, said: ‘Sponsoring The Pastel Society is an opportunity for us to celebrate the works that artists create using this fine art medium.’

The annual exhibition displays more than 80 entries from both members and non-members of the organisation.
