A room at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery is this month devoted to the Bournemouth artist and illustrator Eustace Nash (1886 –1969) who knew the coast well.

With his friend and fellow artist Leslie Ward (188-1978) he explored Bournemouth, Poole Harbour and Purbeck for views.

The small exhibition features some coastal scenes and Nash cartoons.

‘Eustace Nash: Pen to Paper’ is at the art gallery and museum, which is open daily 10am-5pm including Bank Holiday Monday, until Wednesday 30 August; admission charge.
