In A Different Light

Elizabeth Le Vierge, Sally Williams

15 – 21 May 2013


  • Elizabeth Le Vierge

‘This exhibition shows a selection of my recent paintings in which I have been experimenting with techniques and styles, predominantly in oils and mixed media on canvas. The subject matter is more representational than in my previous work and includes urban and rural landscapes and still life.  Light, colour and texture remain key factors in the interpretation of the subject. Please do have a look at my website,  which gives a comprehensive view of my work, collagraph prints and drawings as well as paintings over a number of years.’


  • Sally Williams

‘This body of work includes some of the spiritual connections I have with the Forest of Dean and The Severn Valley, together with ley lines around my home near May Hill. The places and spaces that I am drawn to all have strong emotional pulls, and although I extract from them – I only leave footprints. My passion is for mark making and exploring the patterns left in your mind long after leaving – often in perfect alignment on the landscape. A mix of acrylics, charcoal, and graphite are just some of the media I use in seeking the lost and hidden shapes and colours that I incorporate in the quest.’

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.

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