Welcome to the Cotswold Art Club
Membership is open to all artists both amateur and professional. The club gives support and encouragement to its members with a number of activities.
In Jan, Sue provided us with an excellent demonstration as she took us through her multi-layer technique with watercolours starting with the dark areas in purple and then layering to the highlights in yellow.
November’s demonstration by Stoney Parson was an interesting demonstration in loose landscapes with acrylics. Her style was to use a lot of white with a limited pallet to produce interesting shades and contasts. There was fun with an audience participation on how to respond to the painting to make further changes.
Heather and Audrey are retiring from doing the teas at break time after more than 30 years of sterling service. In recognition they were presented with some beautiful flowers to enjoy at home.

We will be moving to a bring-your-own drink for break time at future meetings.
We have completed all the demos for this year but they will start again in January next year. In December we have our AGM, there will also be a with members exhibition (bring one artwork to display), a few refreshments and hopefully a short quiz.
More infomation about next years schedule is on Club Meeting Page

EXHIBITIONS IN 2023
We had an exhibition at Lower Slaughter in September.
Bourton on the Water
We had a 3 days exhibition at the Victoria Hall in the heart of Bourton on the Water in August.
Our 5 week exhibition (Saturday 3rd June – Sunday 9th July 2023) at Hidcote Manor this year to celebrate their 75th year with the National Trust, has flown past. It was a great success for us and the Manor.
All art that was exhibited, was inspired by Hidcote, this included the gardens at Hidcote Manor, the Manor itself, the creator Lawrence Johnston, Hidcote village, the history of the gardens, the farms, the surounding cotswold landscape and nature, so it was really interesting to see how different artists interpreted this theme
Visit the Hidcote Manor Exhibition 2023 Page to see some of the work that was included.
