Chiswick In Pictures is now open at the Clayton Hotel Chiswick. This year’s exhibition, organised by The Chiswick Calendar, is more representational in style than last year’s show, with recognisable Chiswick scenes painted by professional artists who live locally.
Delicate watercolours of Hogarth’s House, Chiswick House and Gardens and local parks by Hugh Bredin, Sophie Ashdown Coady, Christine Berrington and Liz Butler MA, RWS hang alongside charcoal drawings by George Christie, Joanna Brendon MBE, MA and Jill Meager.
Bright summer gardens and allotments by Francis Bowyer P.P.R.W.S., N.E.A.C., Glynis Porter and Rennie Pilgrem sit with architectural prints of Voysey House by Rachel Busch and the structural magnificence of Hammersmith Bridge by Keith Davidson, while a small ink and pastel drawing of cranes over Chiswick by Jason Bowyer P.P.N.E.A.C.,RP, PS is a nod to the continuing changes on Chiswick’s skyline.

Large oil paintings by Humphrey Bangham and Isobel Johnstone show Strand on the Green and the chestnut trees on Turnham Green in full bloom and those by Arabella Harcourt-Cooze catch the light on the river in its many moods.
Louise Kaye has chosen street scenes from Chiswick High Rd, while Jon Perry and Anna Kunst cover a variety of Chiswick scenes in their atmospheric photographs.
The art work is for sale and if you’d like to come and meet the artists and talk to them about their work, or indeed just enjoy the free booze and the art work, please come to the Private View this Wednesday, 12 September at 7.30pm.
