Camilla MacDonald Art & Duncan R Powell Photography

Camilla MacDonald Art & Duncan R Powell Photography: A debut collection

22nd – 28th March 2017


  • Camilla MacDonald – I am an artist specialising in oil and acrylic paintings on canvas.  I also paint house portraits by commission. I have been painting, drawing and scribbling for as long as I can remember and I’ve always been passionate about art.  I have studied art and History of Art and am a qualified art teacher, so it has always been a big part of my life.  These days I am a busy mum, married to Simon and have children Henry 7, Billy, 5 and Beatrice, 2.  I can usually be found with a paintbrush in my hand or making something for our home. I love to paint whether a streetscape, a view, an interesting building or a sketch of my children there are so many things to capture in detail.



  • Duncan R Powell – I’m a dentist working in the centre of Cheltenham. I’ve lived here for 15 years. I’m married to Lorna and have two daughters: Evie aged 6 and Gaby aged 4.  I’ve always been interested in photography but became obsessed with it about 5 years ago. Most of my photos used to be taken with my phone, but I use a compact system camera most of the time now. But the phone often gets used as it’s always in my pocket.  I like taking landscapes most, but like to try all genres. 


Open daily 10am-5pm

Entry free




The Gardens were originally developed in the early 1800's and its centrepiece is the Bandstand.

Facing the Bandstand is the Proscenium Building where we now have our Gallery.

Follow for a history of the gardens and for information about Friends of the Bandstand and Gardens(FOMBAG).


  1. There is wheelchair access to the gallery from the path between the tennis courts and the gallery.
  2. For exhibitors delivering their work, there is a locked bollard to be removed at the gardens entrance. See link below for details.
  3. Unfortunately, there is no disabled parking in the gardens.
  4. Exhibitors should take care to design their exhibition layout with wheelchair use in mind.

For full information about accessibility, please follow this link:


 Typical annual foot-fall is 22000.

If we take out the impact of Festivals then the weekly average is 400 per week.

This varies according to the variables of weather, social media, networking, number of artists, and the appeal of the Exhibition
