    Mon-Thurs 10-7, Fri-Sat 10-5Bournemouth Library, The Triangle, Bournemouth, BH2 5RQ

    This is our first exhibition at Bournemouth Library. The gallery is located on the second floor of the Library (a lift is available).

    Over 80 art works by members of East Dorset BraveArt Society will be on display at this town centre venue. Works framed and unframed, and cards will be on sale at affordable prices. Entry to the exhibition is free.

    BraveArt 12 runs daily except Sunday, when the Library is closed.

We have regularly held an annual exhibition at The Gallery Upstairs, Upton Park. In 2019 we also  exhibited at Bournemouth Library and the Community Learning and Resource Centre in Wimborne.

Although our 2020 BraveArt13 exhibition was cancelled at The Gallery Upstairs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is available as a “virtual” version via the link below. Please follow the link and let us know what you think.

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 during our Monday evening meeting at Upton Community Centre.  We hope to establish these as regular events in our diary.

Pop-Up Exhibitions

We have been experimenting with locations, venues and “pop-up” exhibitions  in and around Dorset to show our work.

In June  2020 we planned to exhibit in the laundry at KINGSTON LACY, Wimborne and were invited to Kingston Lacey during the Summer months for “en plein-air” painting sessions. Although these events were cancelled due to coronavirus, we hope to continue this association with the National Trust in coming years.

Community Events

We also support various local events like Upton in Bloom, Poole Grammar School’s Summer Fete and the Poole Carnival by exhibiting work. We are keen to find opportunities to participate and display our artwork in public venues.

In 2019 members entered work in the Upton Community Centre art competition on 17th August.

In September 2019 members joined other local artist  groups at Knoll Gardens, Stapehill to paint and draw in the gardens for a day.
