Open For Art 2017 – Holly Norris and Stephen Yates 20/5/2017-1/6/2017

Holly is a local GP working in Dorchester, who has also been exhibiting regularly since qualifying from the Open College of the Arts. Last year she launched her arts career by opening her hut on Portland Bill to the public as part of Dorset Arts Week.

This year she is joining forces with another Portland-based artist, Stephen Yates. They will be exhibiting at Stephen’s house on Coronation Road, which boasts spectacular views of the Chesil and Fleet (as you can see from the top of the page). Stephen has many years experience as a potter as well as painting, and we have recently concentrated on setting up a pottery studio in the house.

2017 marks an exciting year, which will include us taking up a four weeks ‘artists in residence’ post in New South Wales, Australia.

Join us to see how we have responded to the Jurassic coast in paintings, prints, textiles and ceramics.  From May 20-June 1 at Coronation Road, Portland.
