FIVE artist venues, both solo and groups, in and around Lyme Regis are participating in the upcoming Dorset Art Weeks 2022, taking place from May 14 to 29.
Each artist will have an allocated venue for the bi-annual event, where they will showcase their artwork to the public.
Some venues feature groups of artists, whilst others are going solo and opening their homes and studios to visitors.
The 16-day event attracts locals and visitors from all over the UK and, this year, is expected to be even more popular as it celebrates 30 years since the very first Dorset Art Weeks.
Over recent months, a variety of artists from across the whole of Dorset have been busy preparing ahead of the open studio event.
In villages surrounding Lyme Regis and Bridport there are more than 70 artists taking part.
The Lyme Regis artists taking part include Jools Woodhouse (Venue 224), who paints vivid and colourful local landscapes; Alison Bowskill (Venue 225), a printmaker who gets inspiration from her observational sketches of the world around her; Fran Williams (venue 226), who creates small wooden figures from her workshop; Studio 19 (venue 227), a collective of 12 multi-media artists featuring paintings, textiles and more; and Christine Allison (venue 228), who creates paintings inspired by nature with a studio overlooking the Cobb.
The artwork that is showcased typically includes painting, printmaking, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture, woodwork, glass, photography, modern crafts and much more.
During the event, visitors can download an app to highlight the closest venues to their location. The app will include information such as opening times, a map, a brief description of the artwork at the venue, and directions.
All participating artists will be given yellow signs with the Dorset Art Weeks logo and will have their venue number written on it to prevent visitors getting lost.
