Tincleton Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary fine art in Dorset. This does not always mean that we show only the work of Dorset artists or that the subject must always be Dorset. Instead we cast our eyes further afield looking for new insights and new artists as well as supporting the work of our local cadre. The works include drawings and paintings as well as a selection of sculptures.
Tincleton Gallery is the idea of Joan Burdett-Coutts who has lived in the Old School House in Tincleton for many years. Since 2013 Joan has sought to bring the original school classroom back into public use for art exhibitions and music events. The Old School House itself was designed by the Victorian architect Benjamin Ferrey (b. 1810) and built in 1840 to provide schooling for Tincleton and the surrounding villages.
The gallery is open 10am – 5pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. If you wish to visit at other times please contact us.
During the DAWs fortnight Fri 27th May until Mon 13th June 2016 we are open all week except for the Tuesdays. There is a free sculpture workshop hosted by local sculptor Sarah Moore on Thursday 2nd June & Friday 3rd June 10:30 am – 5:00 pm
