STUDENTS from the Compass Centre in Weymouth will have their works displayed alongside a professional local artist at Dorset County Hospital.

Their work will be included in a display featuring pieces by Day Bowman that will take pride of place in the corridor leading to Damers Restaurant this summer.

The exhibition will run from May 10 to September 7 and is free and open to the public to come and view every day.

Artist Day, whose work has been exhibited all over the world, struck up a relationship with the Compass Centre after it arranged a previous exhibition at the hospital in response to her installation at Weymouth railway station during the 2012 Olympics.

Day said: “This is an exciting opportunity to stage a joint exhibition.”
