Bournemouth bi-centenary exhibition at Russell-Cotes

Views of Bournemouth has opened at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum.

The museum is on the coast path as it rises east from Bournemouth Pier. Today in the sun the villa’s garden and the sea had a south of France feel.

The exhibition of paintings old and new marks both the towns bi-centenary and the Bournemouth Art Club‘s 90th anniversary.

Portraits include the town founder Lewis Tregonwell and famous resident Robert Lewis Stevenson. There are several coast views and a Eustach Nash cartoon featuring the seafront.

It’s well worth a visit. The special exhibition continues daily except Mondays until October; free. There is  a good cafe although it closes sharp at 5pm.
