Accomplished local painter Simon Read has built a considerable reputation for the atmospheric seascapes he creates in the studio from sketches made in his favourite corners of the West Dorset coast.

 Gallery HOME SHOP FRONT AThere are currently some excellent pictures by Simon at the Gallery and at Gallery Home, ranging from small seascape studies to larger canvases.

Gallery Home is the second shop from the people who set up Gallery On The Square, Poundbury.

Owner Stephanie Murdock said: “Since we opened Gallery On The Square, things have really moved on. With a growing number of shops in the same area, more and more people are coming to Poundbury to shop – very often for things which you don’t find on the high street.

“We have always had a small range of furniture and lighting. Now Gallery Home gives us more opportunity to showcase lovely lamps, chairs, tables and interior accessories.”

Gallery Home can be found in Lower Blakemere Road, between Queen Mother Square and the Butter­market in Poundbury.
