Fund-raising sale of art

A sale of art will take place on Saturday 18th in aid of Hastings Supports Refugees and the local Labour Party’s Good Ruddance fighting fund. Rachel Lever, one of the moving forces behind the initiative, writes in praise of the sale of art as fund-raiser.

The campaign goes on - from a rally outside St Leonards Crown PO in November.

St Leonards Post Office keeps our local economy thriving

Last Saturday saw a grand turn out by the local community to defend the CROWN Post Office in St Leonards. HOT’s Erica Smith joined the throngs to find out why people were so concerned about the intention to close the only CROWN Post Office left in the whole of Hastings.

A fresh look through the Windows of TASS

To coincide with the Russian New Year, Kino Teatr are featuring an exhibition of original, stencil cut and hand-painted Soviet posters. These were used to promote State information to the Russian public during the Second World War and throughout the 1950s. Baker Mamonova Gallery has invited contemporary British and Russian artists with an interest in these powerful and striking graphics to produce a piece of work in response using the same stencil techniques. These will be displayed alongside the original TASS posters. Erica Smith looks through the Kino-Teatr windows to review the Windows of Tass.

4 on the Shore

‘Unexpected Pleasures’ is the title of the first exhibition by new Hastings-based arts group ‘4 on the Shore’. This group of four established local artists – C June Barnes, Danny Mooney, Alison Purdy and Donna Fleming Hall – were brought together by their desire to bring accessible artwork and design to the people of Hastings and beyond. HOT’s Erica Smith caught up with Danny Mooney (self-portrait pictured above) to ask him about his work, the group, and their show.

Abstract paintings and wire sculptures by Danny Mooney at Gill Gallery

The clue, really, is in the title… Danny’s paintings, which have walked alongside Australian Aboriginal art and come out the other side, sit next to wire sculptures in box frames and the two combine to create a delightfully intimate exhibition. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson visited the show and talked to Danny about the inspiration and motivation behind his work.
