Art Without Age

Harbour House Care Home Exhibition ‘Art Without Age’ 

Wednesday 18th  - Sunday 30th June

Residents of Harbour House Care Home, West Bay, with an average age of 90, will be exhibiting their art at an exhibition at the prestigious Sou’-Sou’-West Gallery, Symondsbury from Tuesday 18th June til Sunday 30th June. This will be the second exhibition by the residents, having been invited back to show for a longer time, after the success and popularity of their ‘Past Times’ exhibition there in 2023 (including a sale!). 

Harbour House residents have a weekly Art Session with local Bridport artist Sarah Jane Ross. Most participants have only started painting in the last few years and the majority are in their 80s and 90s. 

The art sessions tackle a wide range of subjects, varying from seascapes and sunsets, works inspired by famous artists and, most popular, nature, including seasonal flowers. Residents experiment with a range of different media, including acrylic paint, inks, charcoal, watercolour, oil pastel and soft pastel.
