Artwey is a Community Interest Company (CIC) formed in 2009, registered with Companies House No 06986906.
There are two legally appointed directors and a core group who oversee Artwey activities on a voluntary basis.
Chairman, elected June 2015, formerly membership secretary.
I joined Artwey in 2009 and being part of this community has given me the opportunity and confidence to exhibit within my locality and outside it. It has encouraged and challenged me to develop and grow as an artist and I agreed to take on the role of Chairman to give me the opportunity to give back. It is an exciting time for us working on a brand new website and planning our second Christmas exhibition and our first exhibition beyond the locality in Durlston, Swanage, Dorset.
I produce hand-sewn land and sea collages working with a range of new and old textiles.

Olivia Nurrish gained a degree in Fine Art from Bristol and after a long period working and raising a family has returned to painting having been inspired by the wonderful scenery of Dorset. She was a founding director of Artwey, aiming to promote her fellow artists from Weymouth and Portland through organising Open Studios and various pop-up exhibitions throughout the towns.
With a colleague she also produced an official Cultural Olympic project ‘The Giant Wall’ in 2012. Her work is a familiar sight in the area as she exhibits and sells regularly in addition to her commissions.
