What’s On

20th July – 13th October

Jeremy Gardiner: Turning the Tide

Turning the Tide explores an array of landforms along the South Coast of England. Jeremy Gardiner’s paintings of this coastline derive from his cumulative experience of walking along it, sailing past it, and flying over it, studying changes wrought over millennia and during his lifetime.
20th July – 9th November

Jem Main: Migration Myth Metaphor

In this inaugural exhibition for the Drawing Room, Migration Myth Metaphor shows new and recent work from Jem Main. Jem worked as the Creative Director for Dorset Visual Arts before retiring in 2023 and relocating to the Isle of Luing – pronounced L’ing, where the constantly shifting weather, light and tide now inform his artistic process.
27th October – 12th January

Making Dorset

Making Dorset will put Dorset craft, design, and making on the map and connect it to national craft initiatives and organisations such as the Crafts Council.
