Spring is certainly in the air, which is a clear signal that Summer is not too far behind. We are, after all, already in March. If you’ve visited The Ollerod before, you’ll know that we love art; it’s on our walls, it’s on our shelves, it’s all over the building. And we particularly love the abundance of local art that so often passes through our doorways. This Summer, we’re celebrating local art again, in true Dorset fashion.

You loved last year’s Summer of Art at The Ollerod, so this year, we’ve decided to host an art exhibition at The Ollerod as a fringe event to the very popular Beaminster Festival week.  Beaminster, and the surrounding areas, is blessed with an abundance of amazing creatives and artists and The Ollerod is always on the lookout for ways to showcase the region’s creativity.

This Summer, we’re hosting a collection of art created by 8-10 local artists, during the week of the Beaminster Festival. We’ll be adorning our walls, shelves and windowsills with creations that include paintings, sculptures and more.  A private viewing event will officially open the exhibition on Thursday 25 June, whereafter visitors will be welcome to stroll around The Ollerod and enjoy some of the amazing creations from Dorset.

Entrance to view the exhibition is free and open to everyone, so make sure you diarise the date and pop in.
