Welcome to Purbeck Art Weeks
PAW 2014 Festival more successful than ever
This year’s Purbeck Art Weeks Festival has been a great success, with record sales and numbers at Rollington Barn and many artists’ venues, and record numbers of people at a fantastic variety of events from Baroque to Blues. The events attracted people from all over Purbeck as well as London, the home counties, Sussex, Hampshire and many other places who came specially to visit the Festival. This shows what a great attraction the Festival has become and how Purbeck benefits as a result.
And a great bit of news just in – Sinead O’Neill, a Purbeck Young Artist, who entered one of her paintings into the BBC One Show’s Art Competition and has just heard that she’s been shortlisted with 12 other young artists (out of 1,100 entrants) – this painting will now hang in this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London. 'I'm so excited’ Sinead said ‘I can hardly believe it. PAW gave me the confidence to enter this competition - I've never done this sort of thing before, and without the experience of 3 years in PAW I would never have done it’. Congratulations Sinead!
Purbeck has great local talent – and this is what the PAW Festival encourages, celebrates and promotes.
Keep a look out for PAWF 2015 !
