We are a small Purbeck art gallery celebrating the work of local artists. The Boilerhouse Gallery is easy to find opposite the Corfe Castle railway station in what was once the local milk depot. The gallery is run for and by local artists, and most of us have a studio on site. We have been here since 2002…
Art work for sale includes cards, driftwood, glass, jewellery, painting, photography, pottery, prints, sculpture, stone, textiles and wood – and most artists also work to commission.
We are open though out the year (11-4 Monday to Saturday until Christmas Eve, then Saturdays only until the February half term), and often run workshops and special events with a wider range of art, craft and entertainment.
It’s great to get a mention in the Guardian. We are just about to rebuild our website for 2020 – for now you can get a better flavour of what we do and our current work on Instagram and Facebook. Plans at the Sandy Hill site for 2020 include making use of our new pizza oven alongside open air movies and a mini indie music festival, as well of course as taking part in both the Dorset and Purbeck Art Week Festivals in May/June. Look out for a regular programme of courses and workshops including raku ceramics and alternative photography too. Sign up for our newsletter (bottom left below…)?
