Cotswold Art Club

The Cotswold Art Club seeks to encourage its members in pictorial art, sculpture and outdoor sketching, with meetings for criticism of work, talks and exhibitions.  Regular meetings are held on Saturday afternoons from October to March in Cheltenham in addition to tutored workshops and en plein air sketching and painting.   An annual exhibition is held in the Spring in the Cotswolds.

The Cotswold Art Club, founded in 1931, seeks through mutual help and support to encourage its Members in pictorial art, sculpture and outdoor sketching, with meetings for criticism of work, talks and exhibitions.

Regular meetings are held on Saturday afternoons from October to March.  Three full day tutored workshops are arranged during the year.  In Summer, members meet occasionally at pre-arranged venues for outdoor sketching and painting.  Over the years, the club has aimed to keep the standard of work high.  Two exhibitions are held during one year, one in Spring and the Annual Exhibition later in the Summer.

The total complement of the Club is 100 Members and 30 Associate Members.  Admission to full Membership is by selection and the work of prospective Members is considered by a selection Committee in Autumn and Spring.  The Club is run by a Committee of 8 or 9 Members, but all Members are expected to take part in activities and help in preparation and manning of Exhibitions.
