From next week, Poole Museum will be launching the Poole Open, an exhibition of art reflecting the themes of the Museum collections. The 70 or so works on display were selected from over 200 entries submitted by artists across the country in a variety of media, including paintings, sculpture, textiles, prints and photographs. Some pieces relate to the logboat, industry, trade or ceramics and some are based on objects found in Poole.
Many of the works are grouped in the main exhibition areas while others can be found throughout the museum close to the relevant objects and displays. Come and track them down and see how the artists have interpreted their chosen themes. The exhibition is open from 12th March to 5th May.
