The Upstairs Gallery

Welcome to the 'Upstairs Gallery' - home to our temporary exhibitions.

The Upstairs Gallery houses our temporary exhibitions. We look for works that link to Hengistbury Head: whether that be views of the local area, coastal scenes, landscapes, or wildlife.

If you're interested in exhibiting here, take a look at our exhibitor information page.

Current Exhibition

2 December - 5 January: Heather Miller Lino Prints


Enjoy the fresh, modern and colourful lino prints by local artist, Heather Miller. With some views around Hengistbury Head as well as a variety of other subjects, Heather’s striking work has wide-ranging appeal. Pieces will also be available to purchase.

Coming Soon

8 January - 1 March 2020: Malcolm Crocker - 'Outside the bubble - Images of the Improbable'


Malcolm has created an exciting and challenging set of images which speculate on other places in an almost endless time and space. He imagines other histories possibly involving strange life forms and he paints the landscapes and environments they might have created. It’s all imaginary but may make you think about our own plight as a sentient life form stranded on a small green planet in the immensity of our universe.

The artist will be giving at talk at Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre at 2.30pm on sunday 19 January 2020. Download the exhibition poster.
