Welcome to our website
The Society was formed in 1976 by Roy Baker, 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.
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. Some of our members also meet at the village hall in Shipton Moyne on Monday afternoons.
Contact us to join or just come along to a meeting.
At present, we hold three 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. See Programme for dates and Exhibitions for submission details for members.
