  • What's Hot in May 2022 – Love, Laughter, and Lunar Celebrations!

    From ongoing pandemics to heart-breaking conflicts and rising heating costs, it has been yet another shaky start to everyone's year. But we're now nestled in the warmest month of spring, and hopefully many of us can look forward to brighter days to come.

    Joyfully, May kicks off with the feel-good observances of Global Love Day and World Laughter Day; both falling on the first day of the month.


  • Looking After Our Green Spaces and Britain's Urban Wildlife
    You don't have to live in rural areas to find a wealth of wild animals in the UK. In Britain's towns and cities, it is possible to spot birds of prey, urban foxes, bumblebees, and tufted ducks to name just a few. The Wildlife Trust states, “The green spaces of our towns and gardens bring nature into our daily lives, brightening our mornings with birdsong and the busy buzzing of bees”.
  • How Easter is Celebrated and Why
    The popular Christian festival and cultural holiday is joyously anticipated each Springtime, enjoyed for its message of hope and renewal and is celebrated in a wealth of ways, some of which may seem unconnected to its religious beginnings.
  • A Brief History of Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday
    In modern Britain the more often, and more commercially, referred to 'Mother's Day', is the fourth Sunday of lent and was traditionally known as Mothering Sunday. It has been observed by both Christian and Roman Catholic Churches since the Middle Ages and the UK is even believed to be the first country in the world to have dedicated a day for mothers.
  • Events in Britain in 2022

    There are some big things happening in the UK in 2022...

    The events calendars in Britain are starting to look a little more 'full' after a couple of years of non-events and cancellations.

    Not least is the “blockbuster” four day Bank Holiday weekend from 2nd - 5th June, in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. After, on 4th February this year she became the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years of service.


  • Valentine's Day – How Romantic Love is Depicted in Art

    Celebrated every February 14th, Valentine's Day originated from the Christian feast day of Saint Valentine, a Roman Empire clergyman who, on that date, was martyred and buried in a Christian cemetery on the Flaminian Way.

    Although he died in 260 AD, it wasn't until 496 AD that the Feast of Saint Valentine was observed, and even later still (around 1000 – 1250 AD) before it became associated with the tradition of 'courtly love'.


  • New Wall Art for 2022

    The new year brings with it new hope and opportunities...and Collier & Dobson are bringing you all NEW limited edition prints.  Today we are thrilled to be launching a tantilising new collection of art to brighten your day - and your walls!


  • Countryside Winter Walks in the UK, and Their Artistic Influence

    We are blessed in the UK, with millions of acres of glorious countryside in which to admire the flora and fauna, and enjoy a seasonal stroll. 

    So tumultuous and captivating is scenic England, and so keen the urge to indulge in a rural ramble, that both have been an influence to artists time and time again.


  • It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas - Symbols of the Festive Season

    Traditions of the annual celebration known and loved the world over stretch back thousands of years, with its roots in pagan midwinter festivals, later merged by early church leaders with Jesus' nativity celebrations.  The Christian holiday dates back to the fourth century and since that time Christmas customs have gradually changed over the years. But many of the ancient symbols and religious expressions of the season have been adopted and adapted, and persist to modern day.


  • Colours of Autumn and How the Changing Seasons have Influenced Art Through History

    As we make our way through October, the glorious colours of Autumn start to transform the landscape and the spectacular scenery and changing colours of our local New Forest National Park is hard to top.

    The woodlands and hedgerows are abundant with colour, from deeply hued plump ripened berries and chestnuts, to the fiery glow of leaves as their green pigment breaks down, revealing the red and yellow tints below.


  • World Animal Day – Our Love of Animals and their Impact on Art
    October 4th is World Animal Day. It dates as far back as 1925 when Heinrich Zimmermann organised the first celebration in Berlin, the mission of which is to unite the animal welfare movement and raise standards around the globe, giving a voice to those who can't speak for themselves....The date was specifically chosen as it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, beloved among Catholics and recognised for his remarkable way with animals and all living things....All around the world, animals have a strong impact on culture, and this is especially so in art. The treatment of the animal kingdom has long been raised through the arts.
  • Colour Schemes to Help You Study

    The new school year is here and - along with having all the necessary uniforms, books and supplies – it is important to ensure having a productive space in which to study.

    Whether it's on campus, in dorms, or in the home, a space to be able to concentrate, work and be creative is essential...Something that can make an instant difference to a space is the application of colour – from the hue of the walls, the furniture and soft accessories, to the artwork on the walls – it can all have an effect on mood and productivity.
