Dorset Art Weeks launches tomorrow on Sat 26 May 2018. It's been all hands on deck here at Othona, getting ready for our 4th DAW! We are very excited (and knackered)!
Tumbling and falling fast through a long, dark tunnel
I emerge, confused but exhilarated, into an explosion
Of glorious white light. Startled by its incandescence, I feel
a sense of wonder and awe. A persuasive force
I have the pleasure of announcing that I've been given the honour of being Othona West Dorset's first 'Artist-in-Residence'!
I'm almost embarrassed to admit just how long we've been been dreaming about replacing our old Art and Craft Building. Now at last the project is really taking off. I pinch myself and, yes, I am awake!
Andy Howlett’s been making quirky movies with other young people here for years. Usually lampooning folk like me – tongue in cheek (I like to think!).
