A Day Drawing and Painting in and around Inglesham Church (built in 1205), Swindon, Wiltshire.
“ The Society hosted a day of drawing and painting at Inglesham Church on the 25th June when members of the society and others , historians from local associations, and members of the public met to hear Jane Rutherford ACR give a fascinating talk on the ancient wall paintings in this historic church. Members then spent the rest of the day engaged on their own work using the church and surrounding area to create a range of drawings and painting from this inspirational location. The church was saved from Victorian “renovation” by William Morris and friends, and later became a subject for John Piper so it was not surprising that the Society were suitably enthusiastic and enjoyed the sunshine and location. It is to be hoped that this outing can be repeated next year.
