Contemporary landscape painting

30th March – 5th April 2016

  • This is an exhibition of new contemporary landscape paintings created using a variety of traditional and non-traditional materials and techniques. I am a local artist who lives and works in Cheltenham and most of my work is based on local scenes.
  • I have a MFA in sculpture but now enjoy expressing my ideas through drawing and painting. My sculpture training has given me a fascination and appreciation of the properties and characteristics of materials.
  • I enjoy layering materials, combining media and experimenting with the different marks and effects that contrasting media can offer. I am interested in expressing a relationship to the environment and capturing the mood, feeling and atmosphere of a place rather than a purely representational depiction.

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
