Dorchester Art Gallery – Unique, Diverse and Contemporary ArtworkMonday, January 14th, 2019
Looking for unique, diverse and contemporary artwork is made easy with Dorchester Art Gallery, situated in the fast developing Brewery Square. Their showroom features a wide range of paintings, collectable limited editions and sculptures, a perfect addition to any household. Whether it’s for new home owners or existing residents, you’re bound to find something that takes your fancy from the galleries extensive collection.
We had a chat with manager Oliver, who was happy to answer some questions on what you can expect to see during a visit, more about the artwork on display and future plans of the gallery.
What is the history behind your business, and what made you want to open up here in Dorchester?
We have an incredible passion for fine art, and had a vision to make fine art available to everyone of all tastes and budgets. Living in Weymouth for as long as we have, we obviously fell in love with Dorset as a whole and what better town to open a fine art gallery than in Dorchester?!
Describe your business in 3 words?
Exciting. Relaxed. Inclusive
What can people expect when visiting the gallery?
People can expect a warm welcome and lovely atmosphere to view and appreciate the art work that we offer here. As well as an easy buying experience from choosing the perfect piece in the gallery to hanging the piece in their home, and everything that comes after then!
What is your most popular genre of art?
We don’t have one particular genre of art that is more popular than another, the artworks we exhibit (and our customers) are so diverse and subjective that it can vary from day to day. But we have everything from whimsical and fun artwork, to sensual figurative pieces to suit all tastes & price ranges.
You work with a large number of artists. What do you look for when featuring new work?
We love all the artwork that we exhibit, and have a great working relationship with all the artists here too. It is obviously very difficult to pick new artwork/new artists, but we choose artwork that will suit the area, also to suit the clients that we have, new and existing.
Do you have a loyal customer base?
We have a very loyal customer base, and we love to expand this customer base regularly. We know that buying art is not always a clear and easy process, so we work with our clients every step of the way to ensure that we unite them with the perfect piece for them, and everyone has different tastes & requirements!
Aside from running your business, what are some personal hobbies or local activities that you enjoy?
We love to have a look around galleries ourselves all around the country, and we particularly enjoy going to art fairs to meet new artists and see what the exciting world of art has to offer!
Any exciting plans for the future?
We have some very exciting plans for the future! You will have to keep up to date with us on social media to be part of it!
