Gloucester History Festival

Gloucester History Festival at Chapel Arts| Wed 5th – Sat 8th & Wed 12th – Sat 15th September 2018 10am – 4pm

Working in the University of Gloucestershire’s Cotswold Centre for History & Heritage, students in History are exhibiting research projects that explore our rich local heritage as part of this year’s Gloucester History Festival. This year’s projects explore the role of The Gastons field in the Battle of Tewkesbury (1471), creating historic walks of Gloucester, and various aspects of Cheltenham’s history from the suffragette movement, ‘slum’ clearances on the Lower High Street, to the impact and legacies of the First World War.

We are delighted to announce our upcoming event

Abstract 7 at Chapel Arts, Cheltenham

Preview - Wednesday 4th July, 6.30pm to 8pm. The exhibition will run from the 4th to the 28th July 2018.

This The Abstract 7 are a group of five painters one potter and one sculptor; all of whom favour the modernist’s approach and a philosophy of abstraction that echoes the appreciation of the New York abstract expressionists.

For this group abstraction is a means of enlightenment, a kind of magic that reveals images of inner feelings beyond thought or mind. The work is not to be reasoned with or necessarily understood. It is to be experienced and meditated upon.

We are delighted to be hosting a series of concerts and composer academies as part of Cheltenham Music Festival, which runs from 30 June – 15 July. For availability and booking, contact the box office 01242 850270

This is the last of our Spring/Summer shows, Chapel Arts will be closed for August but will re-open for the Autumn/Winter shows on 5th September, where we will have exhibitions from Jane Lampard & Michael Long, The Gloucestershire Print Co-operative and Cheltenham artist Robert Goldsmith.

4th to the 28th July 2018
