Bexhill’s first affordable art fair

Murmurations Gallery opens up its summer calendar of events with Bexhill’s first affordable art fair. The idea is borrowed from the famous international art fair hosted globally in cities across the world, whereby artists submit works that falls under the umbrella of affordable art. It is a scheme that aims to make ownership of original art more accessible for everyone.

SoCo strong and fragile at HAF

It is always interesting to go to a curated show as opposed to an all members exhibition. It gives space and development to the artists and more clarity to the viewer. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths dropped in to SoCo (South Coast Artists) first curated Showcase of eleven artists selected from membership submissions.

Artists looking at themselves, looking at you

Self-portraiture is always a fascinating subject for artists. How to show off your best side, your personality and how to incorporate yourself into your style of painting. In anticipation of how artists see themselves, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see The Painter Behind the Canvas at the Jerwood Gallery.

Last chance to take a peek

Sharon and Christine Gist, curator of The Space, in which the installation is housed, give their thoughts on the work.
