Congratulations go to Sylvia Dyer for being awarded Joint 3rd prize with her painting “Bluebells” in a recent competition run by the Fine Arts Warehouse. She is now eagerly awaiting to receive her cheque so she can treat herself to some new paintbrushes.
More of her work will be on display at our Annual Art Exhibition this coming May 13th and 14th, of which there will be at least one or more of her bluebell paints for sale.
Welcome to our second Artist of the Month. Dave Betty is one of Winterbourne Art Group’s more experienced painters working in watercolours. He enjoys visiting art exhibitions and participating in workshops held by professional artists both in the UK and aboard.

If you are in the area, why not come along on Friday 10th February to an art demo by local professional artist PAUL WEAVER. Members free, non-members £5. These demos are always popular and no matter your medium or style, there is always something to learn that could help improve your own paintings. We’d love to see you there. Doors open at 1.30pm, for 2pm prompt start.
Last Friday, Frome Valley Art Group was entralled and entertained by professional artist Jantien Powell’s lively and colourful demonstration in mixed media. Read the full write-up here.
And why not come along to our 27th annual art exhibition on 12/13th May 2023 to see and purchase some of the fabulous work our group produces and for an opportunity to win this fabulous painting by Jantien.
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.
