Welcome to our website

The Society was formed in 1976 by Roy Baker, esteemed Tetbury citizen and one time Mayor of the town. Its object is to promote the appreciation and practice of the Visual Arts. Roy was our president for many years; HRH The Prince of Wales is our current president until June 2021.


Members come from Tetbury and the surrounding villages and towns, and range from professional artists to self-taught improvers and beginners.  We come together to share expertise in a friendly and helpful manner using various media, styles and techniques.

Contact us to join, or just come along to a meeting.


We now hold three major exhibitions a year in the splendid 17th century Market House in the centre of Tetbury, the town's focal point. Exhibitions are held on the Early May and August Bank Holidays and an Autumn Sale in October or November. See Programme for dates and Exhibitions for submission details for members.

Our programme of meetings

We meet at St Michael's Hall, Silver Street, Tetbury on the first Wednesday of most months from 7.30 to 9.30 pm. For more details of the venue and a map see Information.
