Pick of the Week 2017

March's Guest Editor: Megan Dunford

Every month we invite a Guest Editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This March, Megan Dunford – artist, VASW Steering Group member, and Exhibitions & Participation Officer at Bridport Arts Centre & Dorchester Arts – is making the selection.


Megan Dunford sits of the Steering Group of Visual Arts South West. Graduating in 2011 from UWIC with a BA Hons in Fine Art, she has curated several exhibitions and regional events in Dorset, where she is based. She works at Bridport Arts Centre & Dorchester Arts, as the Exhibitions & Participation Officer.

As an artist her work combines drawing, painting, collage, photography & installation. She admits to having a mild obsession with found images, ephemera and banal objects and owns an abnormal-sized collection of postcards, leaflets & magazine clippings. Her practice is often project-led and she makes specific bodies of work as a response to a subject or event.
 
In light of the events of 2016 and her continuing work with and for younger people, her current project is about the disparity and the similarity of age. She wants to raise the profile of young and emerging artists in Dorset and the surrounding areas, and challenge or confirm the statement (depending on how the research goes), 'There is nothing for young people in Dorset’.
If you are interested in challenging or confirming this, you can contact Megan via her website - www.megandunford.com
