New show: Colin Willey 2017

We’re starting 2017 on a high note with a new exhibition by our favourite Dorset landscape painter, Colin Willey.

A fresh series of pictures from Colin is always a highlight of our calendar, and this year it comes early: the exhibition starts on January 28.

Recently Colin has been ranging slightly further afield, and this time the lively Dorset landscapes and seascapes for which he has won such a following are complimented by a series from West Cornwall.

The show goes on for four weeks, before Colin’s pictures move on to this year’s Affordable Art Fair in Battersea; then some will go on to New York.

But our show comes first! If you would like an early look at the new exhibition, join us for a glass of wine on the first day, Saturday January 28, from 12 midday. Colin will be in the gallery from 12 until about 2pm.

Landscape painter Rob Adams, who lives in north Dorset, is back in the gallery with a superb new exhibition in September.

Rob made his name as a member of London’s prestigious Wapping Group of Artists. Said to be the oldest outdoor painting society in the UK, the group includes some of the most respected British landscape and marine painters.

The new show will feature a new series of Rob’s Dorset landscapes, as well as some of the atmospheric London scenes for which he has built such a reputation.

The exhibition starts on Saturday September 10. If you would like to join us for the private view on the evening before (6.30p, Friday September 9) just e-mail us ( art@gallerypoundbury.co.uk ) or ring us on 01305 213322.

Sarah gets the vote

Sarah Woolfenden, Silver Birches

News from Sarah Woolfenden… her pen and ink drawing Silver Birches (above), which was in the The Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition at The Mall Galleries last year, has won the online vote for best in show!

For anyone interested in acquiring that particular drawing, the bad news is that we sold it from the Gallery here just before Christmas… prints of it may be available in a while, though. Contact us if you are interested!

We do of course still have other prints of Sarah’s (framed and unframed) in the gallery. Well worth a look if you are not familiar with her work. And if you are, for that matter!

Jan Walker is back

We are starting 2016 on a high – with the gallery full of new paintings by the inimitable Jan Walker.
We have been fans of Jan’s work for some years – in fact we have bought several of her pictures – and when we started Gallery On The Square, more than four years ago now, she was one of the artists whose work we were most keen to show.
We mounted a very successful exhibition of her pictures, and we have always looked forward to getting her back, but in the face of competition from bigger, more-established galleries, it has taken a bit of time!
This impressive series of pictures is the latest product of Jan’s long-standing fascination with the cliffs of Dorset’s coast and the processes that created them.

One of the highlights of the Gallery schedule last year was Angela Goodman’s exhibition, so we are delighted to welcome Angela back with a collection of new paintings centred on Dorset’s cliffs and coastal landscape.

Down to the Sea: New Paintings by Angela Goodman starts in the gallery on May 8 and runs until June 22.

We think you’ll find it well worth a visit!
