Station Square Exhibition of 12 paintings from the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery has now closed.

An update on this exhibition which is more thoroughly reviewed at:www.swindonopenstudios.blogspot.com
One of my favourite pictures was 'The Sights of London' by Jefferey Camp, 1986
There were unfortunately many ceiling lights reflected in the glass.

Latest updates not available yet because the meeting of the Friends we were due to have on Monday the 14th of January was postponed due to unforseen circumstances.
Our next meeting is now scheduled for the 4th of February, updates after then.
