The Cotswold Art and Antiques Dealers Association, whose ranks include many celebrated BADA members, have joined forces to create an exciting new exhibition at The Oxfordshire Museum, opening on Thursday 22 September.

Entitled ‘Why Antiques? – 100 years of collecting in the Cotswolds’, the exhibition not only celebrates dealing and collecting in the Cotswolds but also serves to illustrate that works of art, antiques and fine art of museum quality can still be found.
Items on display include examples of antique glass, early pottery, furniture, textiles and carpets, watercolours, drawings, metalware, clocks, rare caddies and boxes, architectural objects and exceptional work by the Romantic
Cotswold School of Artists.
The exhibition will include items from the private collections and available inventory of BADA specialists Architectural Heritage Ltd, David Pickup, Delomosne & Son Ltd, John Howard, Legge Carpets Ltd, Hampton Antiques, Moore-Gwyn Fine Art, Newman Fine Art, Sarah Colegrave, Tobias Birch and Witney Antiques.
Admission to the ‘Why Antiques?’ exhibition and The Oxfordshire Museum is free and there will be a CADA dealer on hand every day of the exhibition to answer any questions and to share their passion and knowledge of art and antiques.
The event runs from Thursday 22 September – Sunday 16 October at The Oxfordshire Musuem, Park Street, Woodstock OX20 1SN.
Opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday 10.00am – 5.00pm, and Sundays 2.00pm – 5.00pm, please note that museum is closed on Mondays.
There will also be an accompanying lecture to compliment the exhibition by Rebecca Scott, entitled ‘“Now Whilst My Hands Are Thus Employed” – Three Centuries of Historic Samplers’ on Saturday 24 September. Tickets are priced at £8.00 and can be booked at Museum Reception or by calling 01993 811456.
