Cotswold Life Landscape Painter of the Year Competition


  • The Paragon Gallery 4 Montpellier Street Cheltenham, England, GL50 1SX United Kingdom (map)

We teamed up with Cotswold Life magazine for their Landscape Painter of the Year competition, offering creative locals, both amateur and professional, the opportunity to combine their love of painting and the Cotswolds.  The winner receives a cash prize of £500 and a chance to exhibit at the gallery, alongside selected runners up.

We were joined by Alison Bevan, Director of the RWA,  in the challenging task of picking a winner and shortlisting 3 other artists for exhibition.  We are delighted to announce our winner is retired teacher John Menzies for his stunning watercolour titled "Dance & Drama" (featured below).

Shortlisted artists include; Jan Whitton and her painting "Crickley View", Mike Skinner and his painting "Chalford to Cirencester by Road" and Gillian Keightley's "Woodchester St Mary's".  Congratulations to you all!

The exhibition will run from Thursday 23rd March - Saturday 25th March and we hope you can pop along and enjoy a diverse and striking collection of paintings by these talented winners.
