An Artists Cooperative based in the Cotswolds with Stroud as its heart.

The Stroud Artists Cooperative was set up in 2021 and our first event was an outdoor Stroud Art Fair with over 40 artists participating! Our aim is to provide a forum for local artists to support each other; learn from each other; provide opportunities and generally work collaboratively with members and other local bodies to promote art and artists in Stroud.

The Cooperative is entirely run by members on a volunteer basis - All are welcome to suggest activities and events (providing you are also happy to help arrange them!). Some areas of the website are still under construction! But we hope that you enjoy looking through our artist pages!
