A WEYMOUTH church will be opening its doors to art as it takes part in a community project.

Holy Trinity, Trinity Road, will be one of 42 venues hosting an exhibition as part of the Artwey Open for Art venture taking place from Saturday, May 20 until Sunday, June 4.

Parishioner and Artwey member Janet Hall is coordinating the efforts at Holy Trinity.

She said: “There will be a mix of art for sale and display as well as some crafts.

“Some groups in the church are completing exhibitions to represent the life of the church.

“It is really just to get people into the church to experience art and experience the church atmosphere. Of course, the church building is a work of art in itself.”

The Artwey trail includes 80 artists and takes visitors on an artistic journey from Puddletown, through Dorchester, on to Weymouth and across the causeway to Portland.

Keen artist Janet will also be displaying her acrylic sea-scapes and paintings of the Jurassic Coast throughout the event.

The free exhibition will be open from 10am until 4pm Monday to Saturday and from noon on Sundays with refreshments on offer over the weekends for a donation.

Anyone wishing to display their artwork or donate their time to man the event can contact Janet on 01305 839737.
