Dorset Art Weeks 2016, 28th May to 12th June 2016

daw_logoDorset Arts Weeks is one of the largest Open Studio Events in the country; it brings artists and visitors together in ways that are often remarkable and profoundly different from entering a public gallery. DAW is fundamentally as much about engagement between people as about people and art. At almost all venues the artists, designers or makers will be on-hand to help you engage with the work, keen to talk to you about the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their work.

Richard III in Bridport

on Monday, 11 April 2016 18:27. Posted in News

richard-3rdIt was whilst on a visit to York that Arthur Woodgate discovered the link between Bridport and Richard the Third, popularly known as “The King in the Car Park.”

Now plans are afoot to commemorate the visit of the much maligned monarch. In the riverside gardens by East Bridge an information notice board identifies the location of the Priory of St John the Baptist just across the road, but gives no indication that this is where Richard is considered to have stayed.

“Nor will you find any mention of this anywhere in Bridport,” commented Mr Woodgate, “but I’m pleased to say that this is about to change.”
