Words And Pictures


10 -16 October 2012


  • During this year’s Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, Gardens Gallery is hosting Words and Pictures, an exhibition celebrating the art of illustration.
  • Featured artists include Cheltenham-based Lo Cole (www.locole.co.uk) whose work regularly appears in the Guardian, among other publications, and original watercolours by children’s book illustrator Jackie Morris (www.jackiemorris.co.uk).
  • We will also be showing a selection of limited edition prints from the BOD Collection — faithfully restored from the original illustrations of Joanne Cole (Lo’s mother) — to celebrate 50 years since the first BOD picture book was published.


  • Open Daily: 10am – 7pm

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

    What do you think of the new gallery layout?
