This year Broadstone Art Society will be returning once more to Broadstone Village to present its annual art exhibition. From Saturday 22nd to Sunday 30th October a wide variety of members’ paintings, prints and greetings cards will be on show at the Youth Centre in Moor Road.
There will be something for everyone – to view and to buy. Much of the work has taken place outdoors during the long hot summer at a variety of locations including famous viewpoints, old country houses, the seaside, and even Broadstone itself.
The exhibition will be open between 10 and 4 daily with a late evening until 8pm on Friday 28th October. (Please note midday close on Sunday 30th)
During the last year the Art Society has held a Pop-Up Street Gallery as part of the local Musical Market events. These informal displays have helped the Club to present its work, and additionally to raise funds for Mosaic, a Dorset-based charity supporting bereaved children in the county.
The fundraising work for Mosaic is due to continue into November, when the Art Society will hold an online auction of artwork. All entries will be displayed on the Society’s website www.broadstoneartsociety.com and will be supported by posts on Facebook and Instagram.
The Society’s last online auction raised over £1000 in support of those affected by the situation in Ukraine.
Simon Merry, the Chair of the Society said “We have maintained our exhibitions either live or online but this is the first display within Broadstone Village for a while and we hope we will get many visitors. We have a wide range of work to be seen and we are fortunate to have some very high calibre artists presenting”.
