ESAC summer show offers visual feast in Stade Hall

East Sussex Arts Club’s summer exhibition opens next week in Stade Hall, when some 130 or more works are expected to be on show – about the same as the number of years this venerable institution has been in existence, as chairman Julie Marshall explains.

Maggi Hambling’s The Quick & the Dead

One of the most popular paintings in the Jerwood Gallery is Maggi 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.

Re-interpreting the past through museum exhibits

It is always a delight to go to Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. Around every corner there is surprise. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was intrigued by SOCO Artists’ latest project – an imaginative response to the museum’s exhibits: drawings and paintings, concertina-ed books, beautifully made objects, found objects and textiles.

Gagged

Sometimes one enters an art gallery and is intrigued, surprised, yet finds the work somewhat unsettling. Unsettled is what HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths felt when she went into Project 78 to see Alexandra Drawbridge‘s show, Gagged. She wasn’t thinking of reviewing the exhibition but as the work slowly filtered through, she wondered what it was about and there were questions she wanted to ask.
