Welcome. The Bursledon Art Society was formed over 30 years ago and began with a small art exhibition at the 1986 Bursledon Summer Regatta. From this successful art show an annual exhibition was born to showcase the work of the many talented artists throughout this region. It has proven to be an ever growing mix of ecclectic artwork, craft and sculpture.
The 2019 art show will be held on the 23rd and 24th November 2019 at the Village Hall, Long Lane, Bursledon, Southampton... pop over to our gallery page for some photos of past years. If you are an artist who would like to be involved, whatever your medium, please contact either Wendy Jelbert or Rosalind Jelbert-Ingram... contact details are on the ‘Contact us’ page.
Bursledon Art Society was formed over 30 years ago; the original committee members, Tom Richardson, Wendy Jelbert, Felix Neville-Toule and Bill Fanner, organised a painting exhibition during the Bursledon Regatta at the Elephant Boatyard. It was such a success and attracted so many local artists that the idea of having a larger, annual exhibition was born.
Now that Felix and Bill are no longer with us, Rosalind Jelbert-Ingram and Helen Jones have now joined us making it such a wonderfully successful annual Winter event. It is a focal point for invited and local artists and crafters, to show off their talents in painting, pottery, jewellery and sculpture. If you would like to exhibit, please get in touch.
You are very welcome to come and join us for our art exhibitons where we show many talented artist’s work. Our yearly Winter show is held at Bursledon Village Hall, Long Lane, Bursledon, Southampton, Hampshire SO31 8BZ on the last weekend of November.
Last year also saw the successful launch of the 2018 Spring Art Exhibition held in conjunction with the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble. Along with members of the Yacht Club, the Bursledon Art Society Artists exhibited to the public on 12th and 13th May. Read more>>
