Local Artists On Show At Council Offices

A new collection of paintings and photographs will be on show at Cotswold District Councilís Trinity Road offices in Cirencester until the end of June.

The exhibition named ĎSeasonal Views and Studies in Formí shows paintings and photographs created by two local artists. The art has gone on display in the CDCís Council Chamber and the adjacent lobby area.

Kate Barry and Margaret Sadler met on the ĎWomen into Businessí course in Chipping Camden two years ago and as a result are working together to help promote their artwork.

Members of the public can see their artwork during the Councilís opening hours of 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

You can meet Kate and Margaret who will be on hand to discuss their work, on Saturday 9th May between 10.30am and 2.30pm at the Councilís offices on Trinity Road.

Margaret Sadler, one of the artists, said:
ďThe exhibition at the CDC offices is an opportunity for me to bring together some of my work, alongside work by Kate, whose photography I admire especially as itís content is close to my heart.Ē

Some of the art is for sale and the exhibition is in place as part of the Councilís Cultural Strategy, which promotes and encourages local artists.
