Poole & East Dorset Art Society
Poole & East Dorset Art Society is a long established and very active local art society. We were founded in 1924 and count notable figures such as Augustus John and Henry Lamb amongst our past members.

PEDAS is an inclusive society and welcomes artists in all media genres - figurative and abstract painters, sculptors, felters, embroiderers, photographers and installation artists.

The Gallery Upstairs
Upton Country Park

Poole & East Dorset Art Society (PEDAS) presents 'FLAVOUR',
a sumptuous celebration of food and drink conveyed in drawing, painting, print and sculpture
PEDAS manages this delightful gallery in Upton Country Park. It hosts a wide variety of exhibitions by groups and individuals.
Art UK is the online home for every public art collection across the UK. It already features over 200,000 oil paintings by some 38,000 artists. These artworks are in museums, universities, town halls, hospitals and other civic buildings across the United Kingdom. Most of this art is not on public view. Later in 2016 they will be expanding the project to include watercolours, pastels, drawings and prints uploaded by collections. In early 2017 they aim to add sculptures.
