Patrick Altes urges tolerance at Wave of Dreams gallery

A Wave of Dreams gallery is making its mark with its programming of innovative artists in St Leonards. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was intrigued when she walked into its latest show, Tolerance by international artist Patrick Altes. The images are seemingly primitive, simple figures, but the work is complex as he digs deep into his personal history.

Intimate theatre at its best, The House of Marcelle

The arts are littered with beautiful works based on lost love letters, A. Vasudevan writes. The House of Marcelle, Explore the Arch’s latest offering, joins them, drawing on the missives of Marcelle van Caillie and lover-later-husband Henry Sanford. A multi-sensory work, it brings the forgotten female artist vividly to life.

Second Use – exhibition of the old, the discarded and the beautiful

The medium artists chose to work with is always interesting. Two local artists, Carly Ralph and Lynne Bingham work in similar ways as they celebrate, the old, the disused, unwanted artefacts and give them new life in a way that the things themselves could never have imagined. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths visited their exhibition at Hastings Arts Forum to see how their differences and similarities come together.

Reincarnation: the rise of Hastings Contemporary

Jerwood Gallery has changed its name, changed its status a few years ago to a charity, and is now independent. So what will you see that’s different? HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to the gallery in its new incarnation as Hastings Contemporary.
