‘Treasure Planet’ A celebration of life on the Jurassic coast.
A mixed media exhibition by members of Artwey
Artwey are an inclusive visual arts community promoting visual arts in Weymouth and Portland and beyond through their website, exhibitions, open studios and workshops. The success of OPEN FOR ART 2019 created great interest in the group and lots of new members joined as a result. ‘Treasure Planet’ is an exhibition derived from an open call to Artwey’s members, now numbering around 90, from which a rich and varied selection of works will be chosen to complement the space and theme.
The works include an exciting and beautiful range of media, including painting: – acrylic, oil and watercolour, textiles: – batik, felting, soft sculpture, embroidery and appliqué, photography, printing, jewellery, enamelling, pottery and driftwood sculpting.
Artwey seek out and provide venues to exhibit members’ artwork, organise exhibitions and pop-up shows within and outside the locality as well as open studios events. Individual members provide workshops for training in specific media.
