The Birchwood Painters Beyond Disability

Painting and Drawing

Set up in 2008 by community artists Anita Osborne, Barbara Seddassy and Siobhan Ladyman. Now assisted by volunteers Kate Folly and Hanna Morgan. Originally funded by The Johnny Rhythm Foundation but now self-funded.
9 of the present Birchwood residents are active and 6 regular participants, each producing finished artworks which they show in the Winter Garden space. Normally meet on Tuesday afternoons but also on ad hoc occasions as requested by residents. Study art, art history, painting techniques, colour matching and painting. Exhibitions of the work of Birchwood Painters have been held at Bucks Open Studios Winter Garden, Chesham Museum, Old Hemel Hempstead Town Hall (twice), Queens Park Art Centre in Aylesbury, Christ Church Chorleywood and St Marylebone Parish Church in Marylebone Road. Individual works have been sold at prices between £10 and £300. Funds raised by the sale of paintings, cards, calendars support the group.
