I will certainly be visiting the Marriott again, what a gem, here's the lunch, beautifully displayed as you can see:
Ken and Jan White were opposite me at the table, perfectly situated for a photo:
David Bent's studio in Marlborough Lane where he showed us the originals of the 'Movement 2000', an impressive series of paintings created in response to the crisis in the Balkans
Tim Carroll's fabulous 100 Views of Swindon are displayed together on the long wall beside the cafe:
Swindon Museum and Art Gallery they have an exhibition showing 'Swindon in 175 Images'
ommunity Centre @ Christ Church where Dona Bradley and David Robinson had coloured in some of their pictures from Colouring-In Swindon:

.From Christ Church, we went to look at Caroline Day's exhibition at The Hop Inn. As well as Town Gardens images, Caroline was also showing a number of pictures designed exclusively for English Heritage. Below seen with Deb Battaglia and a selection of her cards
where Susan Carr and Terry Humphries have a fabulous exhibition of en plein air paintings of the Town Gardens and other views of Swindon:
It was a brilliant idea to do a tour round the venues, thank you Caroline, and of course a big thank you to David Robinson and mark Worrall who came up with the idea in the first place.
I'm keen to look at the rest of the exhibitions soon.
