Visual Arts
Contemporary Edge, Rural Context
Artsreach organises a varied programme of touring visual art exhibitions which circulate to village halls, rural galleries, and other venues throughout Dorset. Among the main strands of the touring programme are contemporary craft shows, thematic exhibitions bringing together contemporary and traditional work and collaborations with national and regional artists. In addition to our touring exhibitions, we also manage a range of visual arts projects and residencies working with community groups and artists throughout rural Dorset.
What's Happening Now?
Current Exhibitions
A brand new exhibition inspired by the South Dorset Ridgeway will tour Dorset this summer, accompanied by an exciting range of traditional craft workshops and featuring works from six local and national artists, plus brand new music by rising folk stars Ninebarrow, 'Field Days'.
Current Projects
Artists Dan Bendel, Sarah Butterworth, Isla Chaney, Tessa Farmer, Susan Kinley and Amanda Wallwork have each created the Field Days exhibits in a variety of mediums, responding to the archaeology, geology and ancient myths and legends of the South Dorset Ridgeway.
This exhibition and associated workshops are in association with the South Dorset Ridgeway Landscape Partnership.
