The Gallery Reopens


The Gallery at Shaftesbury Arts Centre reopens on Monday 12 April with a solo exhibition by popular local artist Andrea Jenkins.

Andrea draws on a lifetime of engagement with art to express ideas in a variety of styles and two-dimensional mediums.  

Andrea says “I am very excited to be able to show my recent work at The Gallery as it reopens. The main focus of the exhibition will be strongly coloured abstract paintings and mixed media pieces. Working with bright colour has kept me cheerful over the past months, especially during the dark grey days of winter and lockdown. There will also be some closely observed representational work that expresses my concern for the local natural environment.” 

The Gallery has a full calendar of exciting exhibitions coming up in the future, including Sandy Roberts and her group for Dorset Art Weeks. In the meantime, until the doors officially open, pieces from the cancelled exhibitions will be displayed in their windows.  

Once open, The Gallery will be following the Government’s guidelines regarding COVID compliance, so it will be safe to visit.
