Local Artists' Work On Show At Council Offices

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

The exhibition, called ĎImpressionsí, will show the varied and colourful textile and photography work of two local artists, Margaret Sadler and Kate Barry.

The pair will display their work Ė which has gone on display in the CDCís Council Chamber and the adjacent lobby area Ė from Friday October 2nd until Friday November 27th.

Both artists have around a dozen pieces of artwork each on display and members of the public can see their creations for free during the Councilís opening hours of 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

Artists Kate Barry and Margaret Sadler first met on the ĎWomen into Businessí course in Chipping Campden in 2007 and have since worked together to promote their artwork.

Kate Barry, one of the artists, said:
"I think our work is a study of nature. We both try to get this message across, creating our artwork to express the beauty of nature and our concerns about the environment."

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.

The Councilís Chamber and meeting rooms can be booked for private meetings or functions.

If you are interested, then please contact Cotswold District Councilís Office Services Manager Yvonne Edmonds on 01285 623561
