10th Anniversary Exhibition, November 2017

We held a very special exhibition in Sevenhampton in November to celebrate 10 years of showing Original British Art in the Cotswolds.

From the very first exhibition in October 2007 to the present day, we have shown original art by contemporary British artists in over 47 exhibitions and events.  From art fairs in London and Bristol to curated exhibitions and Open weekends here in the Cotswolds. 

It is always a challenge putting on an exhibition, especially in a remote rural area in Winter.  Will anyone come?  Will we be snowed in? Will the road be closed for resurfacing? These of some of the worries leading up to an exhibition that can keep you awake at night.  So much so that I am always more than happy to reward those who make the effort to come with a cup of strong coffee and a slice of cake.  Many of my clients have become friends over the years and I thank them for their support. 

I couldn’t have done this without the artists themselves.  Some of the artists in the current exhibition were there at the very beginning; Betty Harrison from Cheltenham has been a consistent contributor with her lovely atmospheric landscapes. As has Kate Loveday “the Mary Fedden of the Cotswolds”. Chrissy Silver ceramics featured in the inaugural exhibition in October 2007.  We were also very pleased to have work by Carl Melegari, Pete Monaghan, Jane Skingley, Lorraine Houston, Janet James, Mike Duckering and Sally Wyatt.

As always, we welcome new talent and this time it is in the form of paintings by Conrad Clarke, David Mankin and Georgie Mason.  Not to mention beautiful glass by the talented Helen Slater.

As we think ahead to the next 10 years, the exhibitions will continue, but we will be moving with the times and enabling busy people who can’t attend to visualise and buy works of art on a new website which we hope to launch in June.
