Peter has a new outlet - the superb Birdscapes Gallery: http://birdscapesgallery.co.uk at Glandford, near Holt in Norfolk, run by Steve and Liz Harris. The gallery is set in a lovely part of Norfolk, with an enormous cafe next door, and features predominantly bird and animal paintings by some of the very best wildlife painters in the country, with a smattering of landscapes of wild places and local Norfolk landscapes, which is where my work comes in.
Peter's work can be seen throughout the year at:

Maggie Price passed away on the morning of 4th April. She had been hospitalised for the past week with pneumonia which was just too much for her to overcome having just finished chemo and radiation treatments.
Liz Haywood-Sullivan has established a perpetual award in Maggie's name to be given at every IAPS exhibition, starting with the Convention. Maggie was all about education and so this award is for an emerging artist. People will be wanting to do something in her memory and so they could donate to help fund this perpetual award. Details are now on the IAPS website at http://www.pastelinternational.com/
