  • Press Release May 2015: Original Art Made Here
    Among the festival event highlights taking place in Cheltenham this year is COS15. This biennial celebration of the visual art being made in the area has become an important part of the cultural landscape for artists and art lovers alike. When it started, in 2001, just 46 artists took part; in 2013, the last time the event was staged, over 11,000 people visited the studios, workrooms and exhibition spaces of over 200 artists working in Cheltenham and its surrounds. It will run from 13 to 21 June. And with the boost of some Community Pride Fund to print more guides and market the event, this year’s event should be even better.
