Exhibition to celebrate life of artist Fra. H. Newbery

West Dorset painter Fra H Newbery's life and work is to be celebrated at an exhibition in Purbeck.

It is part of a month of exhibitions taking place around Dorset in April.

Newbery grew up in Bridport and retired to Corfe Castle in 1919, after a long and illustrious career.

He is perhaps best known for his pivotal role in promoting the work of his protégé, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

The project has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Dorset County Council, West Dorset District Council, Bridport Town Council and Purbeck Heritage.

To find out more visit www.franewbery.co.uk or visit tourist information centres in Wareham and Swanage.
