The work of some of the region’s best-known female artists will go on display at the Wolsey Gallery in Christchurch Mansion for four months from the start of September.

“Obscure Secure” includes work by Connie Winn, Peggy Somerville, Anna Airy, Effie Spring-Smith, Kathleen Walne, Helen Kiddall, Prunella Clough, Beatrice Lithiby, Lucy Harwood and Eleanor Every.

The works form part of the borough’s collection and were selected by artists Claudia Böse, Hayley Field and Jacqueline Utley, who have created new work in response.

A programme of talks at Christchurch Mansion explores ideas developed during the project.
