In Celebration of Shakespeare – Cheltenham Group Of Artists

2-8 April 2014

 

  • An Exhibition instigated by and dedicated to Bob Freeman, member of CGA and founder member of The Gardens Gallery.

 

  • In order to mark the 450th Anniversary of the birth of Shakespeare in 2014 members of CGA will be presenting their impressions, in fine art form, of the bard’s rich and challenging written output.

 

  • Shakespeare’s characters and stories reveal universal truths about the human condition in a way to which we can all relate.  His representation of human nature is just as real and as relevant today.  Members will be aiming to explore the many themes embodied in Shakespeare’s work such as love, despair, tragedy, ambition and greed.

 

  • “In Celebration of Shakespeare” at No 8 Theatre, the High St Pershore 17th April – 7th May 2014.  Moving onto The Corinium in Cirencester 5th – 26th June 2014. As there is uncertainty as to the exact date of Shakespeare’s birth, we are continuing to run the show throughout 2015/16 and we are exhibiting in the Dean’s Chapter at Worcester Cathedral in April 2015 .

 

  • CGA are proud to announce a raffle in support of The Sue Ryder Charity. Each entry costs £1 per ticket, giving you the chance of winning a work of art donated by a CGA member. By getting involved, you will be helping Sue Ryder continue to provide free care to those affected by life-changing illnesses, delivered through their 14 care centres, homecare services and healthcare clinics, both in the UK and internationally.
