    BraveArt 13

    10am to 4.30pm dailyThe Gallery Uptairs, Upton Country Park, Poole, BH17 7BJ

    BraveArt returns to The Gallery Upstairs for our 13th Exhibition.

    We will be including our "wonder wall" of small pictures which has been a successful feature of our exhibitions at this venue.  In addition to larger works in the main display, every BraveArt member is asked to produce four small pictures for this varied and popular display.

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.

June 6th-14th 2020 we will be exhibiting in the laundry at KINGSTON LACY, Wimborne and we have been invited to Kingston Lacey during the Summer months for “en plein-air” painting sessions. We are hoping 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.
