Sherborne Art Club

About the Exhibition

Founded in 1931, Sherborne Art Club's Open Art Exhibition, held annually in July, has flourished and grown to become one of the West Country’s largest and most popular Open Art Exhibitions.

The Club’s main purpose is to encourage and promote West Country artists.

See Open Art Exhibition and News pages for details of this year's Exhibition.

350 West Country artists - both members and non-members - regularly enter their work.

Our family friendly Exhibitions are attended by many Summer visitors, who enjoy taking part in the Viewers' Choice Prize Competition (£100). See Prize Winners page for details of all five prizes.

Over 400 Exhibits at our Annual Open Exhibition are for sale and the entrance is free. There is good Disabled Access and Pay and Display Parking beside the Hall.

You can view a selection of our Artists here and can join Sherborne Art Club by signing up.
