Artists' Dorset

Located on the second floor, Artists’ Dorset will call on the exceptional richness of Dorset’s artistic heritage, celebrating Dorset’s creative communities and artistic inspiration. It will utilise the Museum’s collection of paintings, drawings and sculpture to demonstrate how artists have been inspired by the county’s unique geology, landscape and way of life.A large window in the gallery space will provide a view beyond Dorchester to the water meadows just outside the town and the rolling hills beyond, allowing visitors themselves to be inspired by the county’s beautiful landscape. Spaces will be created for art-based activities, research and community exhibitions.
