Art4Action: A Purbeck Perspective Exhibition

Art exhibition at The Haven Hotel, Sandbanks


A Purbeck Perspective

An exhibition of paintings with four Dorset artist contemporaries: Cathy Veale, Cliff Towler, Ian Hargreaves and Rob Adams.


Four local artists have come together to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. A year ago local artist Cliff Towler lost his sister Annie to MND. This special exhibition, in her memory hopes to raise money for MNDA research into finding a cure for this terrible disease.

Entitled A Purbeck Perspective, the exhibition will feature Purbeck inspired landscape and wildlife paintings from four well known local artists: Cathy Veale, Cliff Towler, Ian Hargreaves and Rob Adams.

The art exhibition is taking in the lounge of the Haven Hotel at Sandbanks with absolutely stunning views. A wonderful backdrop for some inspirational artworks.

About the artists

Cathy Veale
Cathy attracts increasing acclaim with her stunning coastal scenes. renowned for large watercolour seascapes. Being a keen sailor, she takes inspirations from the beautiful Dorset coastline.

‘My work is my life. Everywhere I have been, everything I have seen and everything I have done can be found reflected in my wildlife studies of the natural world.’

Ian Hargreaves

Rob Adams
Rob gave up his commercial work as an illustrator, film and TV set designers to devote his time to painting en plein-air. He enjoys landscapes and townscapes, capturing their moods and beauties in oils.
