FANS of the natural world are going to love this pop-up art exhibition full of life, energy, colour and passion.

Junction 12 Art Group members Tamsin Stuart, Wendy Thompson and Clare Gadsby are joining forces for a fun and friendly art fix in the heart of Winchcombe.

They are two painters and one photographer all with different styles, different media and different subjects, all connected by their love of nature and thirst for life.

They are promising an eye-catching, thought-provoking and socially-distanced experience at the Dove Gallery to ease people back into a bit of post-lockdown art appreciation.

This will be Junction 12’s first and only group show of 2020 after everything else the Gloucestershire collective had planned to date had to be cancelled due to coronavirus.

Tamsin paints anything that inspires her on a range of themes and, as a keen kickboxer and martial artist, likes her creations to have a punch and sense of being alive. Wendy loves capturing the character of animals and people with a drawing style she’s developed over many years and is often found in the Cotswold countryside sketching away. And Clare takes her camera everywhere she goes in search of pattern, lines, texture, shape and colour in nature, looking for an original and abstract slant.

“It is such a wonderful relief to have the excitement of getting ready for an exhibition again after so long in lockdown,“ said Tamsin.

“Our creating never stopped so we have lots to show people. In fact, we could probably fill the gallery ten times over!

“This should have been a big year for Junction 12 and all its members, but sadly it wasn’t to be. We are just grateful for this show at least and to be able to offer a flavour of who we are and what we do.”

The exhibition, at the Dove Gallery in High Street, will be open daily from 10am to 4pm from Friday, October 2 to Wednesday October
