New and recent works by Dorset Visual Arts in the Main Gallery at Lighthouse.

The Salon was formed three years ago aiming to enable a group of artists with solid professional training and experience to test and challenge their ideas and find stimulus through peer review, discussion, exhibitions and informal collaborations.

This exhibition opportunity came at short notice, presenting the opportunity for us to catch up with the changes in direction many of us have made since we were last able to meet in-person.  We see new themes and interests and cross-references emerging between members of the group and these will be explored through an e-publishing project in the coming months.

To find out more about the group’s members, please follow The Salon on the Dorset Visual Arts website - a gallery pages is currently in development - and on Instagram.

Members exhibiting in this show include John Austin-Williams, Imogen Bittner, Helen Brasher, Jo Burlington, Lisa Riot, Jacqueline M Byrne, Norrie de Montigny, Claudia Dharamshi, Hugh Dunford Wood, Clare Hawkes, Sarah Hough, Caro Lester, Caroline Liddington, Aleathea Lillitos, Jem Main, Carrie Mason, George Paul Sainsbury, Helen Simpson & Ilona Skladzien. Works are available for sale.
