Somerset Art Weeks 2015 – support your fellow Chandos Members!

As SAW 2015 approaches (October 3 – 18), I wanted to draw members’ attention to those of our number who are taking part. Speaking as one of them, it would be great to see as many members as possible. We would really enjoy showing you the fruits of our labour!

So at Bridgwater Arts Centre you’ll find, among other Artists, Jonet Middleton’s textiles and Patrick Warren’s paintings, both inspired by a passion for colour and movement in the environment.

Moving eastwards from the town, Jackie Curtis at Bawrdip (venue 99) shows her trademark prints and woodcuts mainly based on observations of the rich variety of birdlife in the area. Jackie was a deserving winner in our recent Come Outside show.

In the Polden Hills village of Moorlinch, at venue 102,  Anne Farmer and colleagues once more raise the Spring Farm Arts banner. She is showing new watercolours based on scenes observed’just around the corner’ and black and white drawings made further afield, in the Lake District.

Finally, our other Come Outside winner Carole Tennant is exhibiting at the Wagon House Gallery in Shapwick – venue 100 – where delicious light lunches are also available.

Come and help us fly the flag for the Chandos Society of Artists!

      Hello Rosemary

      From time to time people mention work signed ‘Chandos’ but I don’t believe that painter has anything to do with the Duke of Chandos, active in the eighteenth century in Bridgwater, the ‘home town’ of our society and after whom it is named.
