Frederick Cameron-Street

It is with great regret we have learned of the sudden death of Frederick Cameron-Street on Tuesday, 23rd August 2016.

Frederick was a Life Member of the Fosseway Artists and was also one of the founding members of The Guild of Wiltshire Artists. His idea of bringing artists together to share ideas and knowledge benefited Guild members, both past and present, and established a close artistic community within the area.
