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.

Painting is fun, at times frustrating, but is a great way to forget your worries and a marvellous stress reliever.
