DATE TO BE REARRANGED - DORCHESTER ART CLUB SPRING COMPETITION 2020

This year the piece you produce for this competition must be an abstract non-representational work, in any medium and any size but it must be "exhibition ready" as the prize is the trophy carved by Rebecca Freiesleben.

 

SUMMER 2020- DORCHESTER ART CLUB SUMMER EXHIBITION

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our Summer Exhibition for 2020, however the date has been rearranged and will take place during Dorset Art Weeks in 2021.

SEPTEMBER 2019 - OUR BURSARY STUDENTS

First day of term, and a special occasion for the club:  An exhibition of work by two students from the Thomas Hardye School, Dorchester, who are going on to study art at university, followed by a presentation of a bursary cheque to each of them - a little something from our club to encourage them and help them on their way.  Warm congratulations to Jasmine Brown and Zak Trevett!  Jasmine will be studying Fine Art at Bath Spa, and Zak is starting a foundation course at bournemouth.  Presentations by our President, Gill Cook.
