A Two-part exhibition in the Allsop Gallery
Dorset Visual Arts presents sketchbooks and unframed, developmental works arising from their interrogation of personal subjects broadly summarised as landscape, biography and the abstract.
Alongside this collection is a separate selection of artworks by DVA’s new Salon grouping. This group is formed of fine artists working and exhibiting professionally on a regular basis and several newly qualified artists recently establishing their practice in Dorset. The selection reflects the dialogue they have established about their various methods of imagining, thinking and working.
As a whole, the exhibition gives insight to the visual thinking and experimentation that informs work that is ultimately resolved and deemed ‘finished’.
