Sherborne’s Jerram Gallery displays the work of British contemporary artists, and the exhibitions showcase the work of artists from all over the UK. This friendly gallery makes a point of showing new talent as well as some of the most established artists on the scene, and it’s a must for anybody on a Dorset holiday that has a passion for contemporary art.
Exhibitions change regularly, and they usually include pictures and sculptures created using a whole range of styles and subjects, so you never quite know what you’re going to see when you visit the Jerram Gallery. The gallery has a quaint setting in the sleepy market town of Sherborne, and it’s surrounded by historic buildings, antique dealers crammed with fascinating treasures and of course the Abbey.
Works on display at the Jerram Gallery include watercolour, pastel, oil and tempera, so there really is something to suit every taste. The pieces change regularly, and sculpture on display at the gallery is either carved straight into stone or bronze. The gallery staff are always happy to offer expert advice on restoration work, and anything purchased can be shipped abroad if required.
