“Sandy Hill Arts is Purbeck’s new arts charity, hosting some twenty artist studios as well as the popular Boilerhouse Gallery. PAW 22 is our second site wide venture after the very successful Planet Purbeck Festival last year. Between us we cover ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, flower arranging, blacksmithing, jewellery, textiles, photography and stone carving – and hope to have some guest artists during Art Weeks.
The Boilerhouse Gallery will open as usual throughout PAW and other artists will open their studios various times. Plenty of scope to meet the artists and engage with work from greetings cards up to commissioned paintings and sculpture. We are well known for an eclectic range of work you won’t find elsewhere, with artists largely exploring new ideas rather than creating with the High Street in mind.
We are working up 2022’s education and events programme and expect to have live music, occasional demonstrations and refreshments on site – keep an eye on social media for more details closer to Purbeck Art Weeks.”
