Over the summer Alex Lowery fills Sladers Yard with his luminous paintings of West Bay, the Chesil beach and Portland. This is his fifth solo show here in the harbour at West Bay that has inspired so much of his work over many years. Alongside the paintings, showing for the first time at Sladers Yard, is the eminent ceramicist Jack Doherty whose timeless porcelain pots are soda-fired and glazed with copper to give  astonishing turquoise colours and beautiful textures.  The furniture of Petter Southall completes the exhibition of sophisticated simple forms in luxurious but minimal colours and textures.
