Four Artists Delight in the Wild & Romantic

6th – 12th July


  • Ros Cresswell My name is Ros Cresswell.  I have been painting all my life.  I am interested in the broad spectrum of nature, wild flowers, trees, fungi and birds and their nests. I have studied botanical art, but am mostly self taught.


  • Tony Pegg A retired architect, I paint pictures mainly in oils, particularly of buildings and landscapes.  I lived in Cheltenham for over 20 years and include several views of the town’s buildings in this exhibition.


  • Barry Hill I have been painting most of my life, but early retirement from teaching allowed me to take it up more seriously and I’ve enjoyed being part of an art group in Stroud where we’ve lived for over 40 years. I love walking, particularly in wild places. Many paintings were inspired by walking the entire South West Coast Path. More recently, visits to the Hebrides and the Northwest Highlands of Scotland have produced a series of paintings in oils and acrylics which form my contribution to this exhibition.


  • Patricia Lee Art has always been a passion of mine, portraits being my favourite. I attended St Albans Art School but after having a family, later a Registrar and finally a Civil Servant, I retired to give myself space for my many interests. This exhibition contains a selection of images of the “Romantic Poets” and their poetry.


Open Daily 10am – 5pm

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
