Purbeck Art Weeks is an annual festival that takes place across the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset. The festival brings together artists and makers from all over the area, showcasing their work through exhibitions, talks, workshops, and open studios. The festival is a celebration of the vibrant arts community in Purbeck and offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture, see the stunning countryside and coastline and get to know the creative community.
One of the highlights of Purbeck Art Weeks is the Artists Open Studios, where visitors can see the artists at work in their studios and learn about their creative process. This is a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of the artistic process and to interact with the artists themselves. The open studios offer visitors the chance to discover new art, purchase artwork directly from the artist, and engage with the art in a way that is not possible in a traditional gallery setting.
The festival hub at Rollington Barn is another must-visit during Purbeck Art Weeks. The barn is a stunning setting showcasing art by all the participating artists and serves as a central hub for the festival, bringing together artists and visitors in a beautiful and inspiring environment.
This years festival takes place 27th May to 11th June 2023.
