Charlbury Art Society is 30

It is now thirty years since the Charlbury Art Group was formed at the end of 1988. It was initiated by the artist John Patchett (pictured) who taught art classes in Charlbury's Adult Education Centre. The inaugural meeting was held in early 1989 when forty members heard an illustrated talk on Colour Association by Andrew Lawson.

Charlbury Art Group later became Charlbury Art Society and it has grown steadily. By 2000 there were 65 members and this has now increased to the current 170 members.

To celebrate this milestone an exhibition is being organised to showcase the huge width, depth and range of creativity in Charlbury. Over sixty members have entered a piece of work and the exhibition will include painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, textiles and much more.

The exhibition can be viewed during the day in the Cornbury Room at the Bell Hotel on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October. Everyone welcome.
