Art Groups Cheltenham

Cheltenham Group of Artists

 

Founded in 1920, the Cheltenham Group of Artist’s aim was to bring together local professional artists to hold joint exhibitions of their work.

Almost a century on, the Group seek to promote an interest in and understanding of contemporary visual arts through a regular programme of exhibitions and educational activities in the area.

 

  • The Group’s exhibitions are widely varied in style, approach and technique.  The membership includes abstract and representational painters, illustrators, printmakers, textile artists and sculptors.  They are always keen to attract members of all ages working in both contemporary as well as traditional media with the aim of expanding the range of work and representing current art directions.

 

 

Cheltenham Open Studios

 

  • Cheltenham Open Studios is a not-for-profit association run by artists for artistsand is one of the largest and most active art clubs in the UK.  Membership is open to any adult who enjoys painting and drawing in any media whatever their ability.  Standards range from basic drawing skills to members who regularly exhibit at The Royal West of England Show and London galleries.  Some of the new members have not picked up a paint brush since their schooldays.

 

  • Members have the opportunity to paint together, sharing ideas and learning new skills whilst enjoying what they are doing.  All groups have a leader who, along with other members, offers informal advice and encouragement.

 

  • The Club also runs occasional short courses for beginners and improvers, with some classes for specific media and subjects.  With a large studio space and excellent facilities in Cheltenham’s Lower High Street the Club aims to provide a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in which to paint and socialise with those who have similar interests.

 

What’s Next?

  • Maintenance The east turret is in need of repair to prevent rain leaking in when the wind is in the ‘wrong’ direction. We hope to get this done during gallery downtime.
  • Hire Dates for 2022 The release of dates for hiring the gallery in 2022 is under review pending the availability of dates for events in the gardens.
  • New gallery layout
