Over the summer Alex Lowery fills Sladers Yard with his luminous paintings of West Bay, the Chesil Beach and Portland. The sis his fifth solo show here in the harbour at West Bay which 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 and restrained colours and textures.

All three artists are masters in their art form.  all three eliminate fuss and unnecessary detail from their work to reach the essence in timeless, intelligent and irresistible pieces. Using repeating forms, whether they are rows of bollards in a painting, a repeated curved component in a chair or a form in a number of related vessels, creates a strong simple statement in the work of all three.
