10 Castle Street, Cranbourne, Dorset
Cob Gallery are delighted to announce a gallery residency appointment for an English countryside members club with a group show exhibited across the rooms of an 18th Century Grade II* listed building.
10 Castle Street, formerly known as Cranborne Lodge is situated of the edge of a favourite hunting ground of medieval kings with links to Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Ubervilles . Built by the Stillingfleet family, the house was altered and extended by Thomas Erle-Drax of Charborough in the late 1750s. Today the house is owned by the Cranborne Estate and is one of a few original country mansions steeped in history, character and charm.
Artists to feature in the ’10 Castle Street’ inaugural exhibition are known for their contemporary reworkings of classic artistic styles, mediums and movements.
