Fran Quinlan: Shifting Edges

Fran Quinlan - Shifting Edges

Fran Quinlan is a visual artist based in Dorset whose work encompasses drawing, print, performance, sculpture and installation.

She is an Alumni of Arts University Bournemouth and delivers participatory workshops across a range of institutions and public settings.

Both nature and humanity are in constant flux of movement and change. As a means to embody this state, she immersed herself in the ephemeral nature of light and the sea, drawing with the traces that they momentarily declare in the physical world.

The outcome is a visual drawing, although her experience is multi-sensory; sound, taste, touch and sight combined.

Exhibition opening times:
March 24th – 23rd May 2023

Daytimes (Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturdays) – 11am – 1.30pm
Evenings (Monday – Saturday) – 6 – 9pm⁠

Due to personal reasons Lewis Peake is unable to show his previously advertised exhibition “New Worlds”. This will be shown at a later date. We are grateful to Fran Quinlan for stepping in with her exhibition “Shifting Edges”.


Mowlem Visual Arts is an initiative aimed at showcasing exciting, new visual arts work in our building on Swanage seafront.
