Bridport-based sculptor Brendon Murless joins Charmouth painter Philip Winstone in our excellent current show in the gallery, running until April 25. Plus beautiful new glass from our favourite glass blower, Bob Crooks. If you’re anywhere nearby, please call in! If you aren’t nearby, well, it’s worth going out of your way! In our opinion, anyway…
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 ( email@example.com ) or ring us on 01305 213322.
