Chippenham and District Artists


Chippenham and District Artists was formed over 20 years ago from an earlier group.

Selection of C & D A pictures in Gallery 5 @ Chippenham Museum & Heritage centreOur aims are to support artists in this locality, to help them to develop and improve their skills and to meet people who have similar interests.

Young and old are welcome to join. The Group is open to all people whether a beginner or an expert and they can receive help and encouragement from other members.Further pictures

These pictures show a selection of members’ work in Gallery 5 at Chippenham Museum & Heritage Centre.

Our President, Bob Rudd, is an internationally recognised artist who lives, works and exhibits locally and nationally. He has exhibited with the Group and offers support and expertise to members and works locally.

As part of our regular programme, we have meetings at which members can learn new techniques from visiting Artists.

Some of the recent meetings are shown below.

In June 2018, Artist Catherine Beale showed us how she used a gravity painting technique.
