Launch of Silver Hill Press

There is definitely an appetite, pride and support for enterprising, affordable, well produced local publishing. Hastings Fish Cook Book is a specialist private publishing company, which published its first cook book in 2009 and produced three different editions and several reprints. The first edition sold out of a print run of 10,00o. Now there is another independent enterprise, Silverhill Press. Photographer Ian Land had the great idea of publishing a series of art monographs starting with photography and then extending out to poetry, possibly illustration and collage. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths asked Ian some questions about the project.

Maggi Hambling’s The Quick & the Dead

One of the most popular paintings in the Jerwood Gallery is Maggie Hambling’s Portrait of Frances Rose; when it is not on display, it is often enquired after. And our very own Erica Smith won the Jerwood short story prize with an imagined fictional account of Frances Rose’s life. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to the Jerwood to see Hambling’s exhibition, The Quick & the Dead.

Multi-media exhibition

Repeat After Me

The war to end all wars that wasn’t. WW1. The supposed dawn of a peaceful age foreshadowed instead a century of repeated conflict; global migration; technology; memory; megalomaniacs; murderers; mercenaries and money makers.
