Breakout! Exhibition

BREAKOUT! is a growing exhibition of miniature self-portraits created by residents of Isle of Wight during lock down capturing the likeness or inner likeness of over 500 folk. ,BREAKOUT! is an ongoing project and we are accepting portraits throughout the exhibition which will be added to the show. 

If you come and see the exhibition, please tag us in all your pictures and use the hashtag #breakoutexhibition – we can’t wait for you to see it!


We are still collecting portraits, so why not get involved? All you need to do is drop off your 10cm x 10cm portrait at Quay Arts. Or post to Quay Arts, 15 Sea Street, Newport Harbour, Isle of Wight PO30 5BD.

We asked the talented Caroline Underwood’s art to produce a step by step video on how to draw a self-portrait! We are still collecting portraits to add to this growing exhibition, so why not follow the video and give it a go?
