Our intended BraveArt13 exhibition was cancelled at The Gallery Upstairs in Upton due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are please to announce out “virtual” version has now been launched. Please tell your friends and family and let us know what you think: BraveArt13 Online Exhibition.


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 a Tuesday evening meeting at Upton Community Centre.  We hope 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.
