There are two groups of artists in the village. The first is a group of artists who are active members of the Artwey CIC (Community Involvement Company) which is a Weymouth/Portland wide initiative.

The Artwey group holds regular exhibitions, including Open Studios, similar to Dorset Art Weeks. There are a number of opportunities to view or purchase local art including, but not limited to; the annual Samaritans Exhibition in Poundbury, the annual Artwey Open Studios in the Waterworks Museum and the Bi-annual Art Exhibition during the village Street Fayre.


The other group is an informal Friday afternoon group that meets in the Mission Hall. This is more in the nature of a painting class - with Roy Winstanley currently acting as tutor. Roy is an established artist living in Preston.
