    BRAVE ART II EXHIBITION! Over 20 East Dorset, Christchurch and Purbeck student artists are holding a free exhibition of their paintings and drawings at the Peacock Art Gallery, Upton Country Park near Poole. It represents a close collaboration between Roy Carr’s Dorset County Council Art Classes and the newly formed East Dorset Brave Art Society (EDBAS).

    The exhibition will have a wide range of works reflecting the range of media that the students are mastering (acrylics, oils, pen and ink, watercolour, pastels etc). It will be the first time that the works have been put on public show. Works framed and unframed, and cards will be on sale.

    The BRAVE ART II exhibition runs daily (10.30 am to 3.45 pm) from Saturday 25 April until Monday 4 May. The exhibition will close at 3 pm on the final day. The Art Gallery is on the first floor of the Peacock Tearooms (lift available). Follow signs for the Peacock Tearooms from the car park. See www.peacockgallery.org.uk or www.pedas.org.uk for more details.

Member Exhibitions

To encourage our members confidence in their own work, we hold a number of “member” exhibitions throughout the year.  These are voluntary to take part, and allow one member to exhibit their own work and receive feedback from other members in the group.  We hope to see these as regular events in the club diary.  These are open to members only.

Pop-Up Exhibitions

We have been experimenting with locations, venues and “pop-up” exhibitions throughout 2016 and 2017 in and around Dorset to show our work and we are fortunate enough to have had a regular spot at Pamphill Dairy (http://www.pamphilldairy.co.uk/), 1.5 miles outside Wimborne Town Centre. We are hoping to continue this association throughout the coming years where you will have the opportunity to view or buy our work. Our most recent exhibition there was a huge success and we’d love to meet you if you come along.

Civic Centre Exhibition

During 2016 and 2017 we have done quite a few smaller exhibitions supporting various events like Poole Grammar School’s Summer Fete and the Poole Carnival. As part of this work, we were invited by the Mayor of Poole to stage a more permanent exhibition in the Civic Centre. Following the success of the exhibitions, we are looking to get further support to continue to display our artwork in public venues.
