Art events now on

Over the centuries, the Dorset landscape has inspired artists, writers and scientists to produce outstanding work.

The Drawing Inspiration project takes a closer look at landscape-inspired art to encourage people to look at the landscape from a new perspective. These are fantastic works of art but they also tell us about the cultural, physical and social changes that have shaped how we live today.
Working with partners across Dorset, the project will showcase these great art works from the past. Project Coordinator Crystal Johnson explains, "We have a fantastic range of different events, there is something for everyone. Take a walk, visit an exhibition, join a workshop, listen to a talk – immerse yourself in the beauty of the Dorset landscape and experiencing first-hand the places where artists have truly, drawn inspiration."
