What's on in The Galleries


18th January - 5th March 2023

Local artist Edward Hall draws his inspiration from the dramatic coastal and inland landscapes of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.  His latest exhibition, ‘Portraits of Golden Cap’, explores the iconic form and setting of this highest point on the south coast.  

After a career as a chartered landscape architect that left little time for painting, Hall made a recent lifestyle change that resulted in a move to West Dorset.  Living in Ryall, the village on the slopes of Hardown Hill between Lyme and Bridport, he didn’t have to venture far from home to be inspired to make his earlier series of paintings entitled ‘A Year on Hardown Hill’.  He has created this all-new collection of oil paintings specifically to exhibit in the unique space offered by Lyme’s Rotunda Gallery. The nature and arrangement of its walls suggested to him a series of vertical portraits, rather than the usual horizontal landscapes.  He found that creating portrait paintings of landscape subjects presented a particular challenge and demanded a different approach to composition, resulting in a fascinating emphasis on foreground.   

Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum, Bridge Street, Lyme Regis DT7 3QA

open Tuesdays-Sundays from 10am until 4pm. 


Don't get cut off by the tide

Nick Marks, previous Lifeboat Operations Manager, said “We would encourage any visitor to the area to check tide times before walking along the beach near Lyme Regis or Charmouth. The local area experiences very high tides at times, so it is very important to check.”

If you see anyone in trouble in the sea, call 999 and ask for the coastguard.
