Artist of the Month for March

Talented artist LOUISE BURN-JONES is our AOTM for March 2023. Of her painting Lousie says:

“I have always loved drawing and studied art at A’ Level.  I’ve done various projects since, such as designing wedding invitations for friends and I’ve painted a mural.  When I found myself with more free time a few years ago I started taking art lessons and learnt how to really paint at Tracy Butler’s Love Art classes under the tutelage of Alex Small.  Doing classes really opened up my world in terms of choice of subject, medium and method.  I particularly enjoyed … Read full story

Artist of the Month Feature Goes Live

Our new feature “Artist of the Month” on our website kicks starts our 2023 year by going live. Each month we will bring one of our group to the fore showcasing examples of their work. Many of the paintings shown will be available for purchase.

Why have we created this feature? Winterbourne is a small village in South Gloucestershire. Each year during May, the group holds its annual public art exhibition. We appreciate not everyone who would like to come, can. Either they live too far away, have no transport means or our dates do not suit. This feature is but one way of bringing our work to the wider public, and to encourage not only new members to join us, but to inspire people to paint regardless of level and talent. Painting is fun, at times frustrating, but is a great way to forget your worries and a marvellous stress reliever.

A Successful 2022 Exhibition

Our Annual Art Exhibition was held over 3 days from 13th to 15th of May. With over 200 visitors viewing the paintings over the weekend. The Preview Evening was well attended both by members and partners, and invited guests.

Over 200 paintings were on show, out of which 62 were sold, making this far and away the largest number of purchases for several years, and reflecting the increasingly high standard of work on display.

This most successful of exhibitions also raised £1,500.00 for our chosen charity: The British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
