The gallery would feature five dedicated spaces with a programme of changing exhibitions, including paintings, sculpture, photography, printmaking, textiles, new media, craft and design.
We would show work by artists and craftspeople from Dorset, across the country and around the world. Education and community would be at the core of the programming, with both free and ticketed exhibitions.
Dorset has attracted renowned artists since the 19th century, as well as many craftspeople. The gallery would become a centre for the stories associated with these artists and makers. This would also be the place where you can find out about artists and craftspeople working in Dorset today.
