‘Untitled (Miss.Ms.Other)’

Opening this Saturday: Hastings born and bred multi-media artist, Thom Kofoed, is holding a solo exhibition of his latest work in the Crypt at St Mary in the Castle. ‘Untitled (Miss.Ms.Other)’ is an exploration of the artist’s connection with strong female icons – and his evolving understanding of what it means to be a woman. Zelly Restorick reports.

Underexposed

A string of pearls of events and exhibitions along the Hastings/St. Leonards seafront last Friday night showed PhotoHastings in all its creative energy and exuberance. Like an iridescent silver halide print, the seafront positively glowed. From Alexander Brattel’s lively In Conversation at Stade Hall, to the opening of Octet at St Mary in Castle and finally to Norman Road, starting with Bob Mazzer’s truly wonderful Underground and culminating at The Garage for the opening of Underexposed, it was a night when these two towns were anything but underexposed. John Cole followed the creative trail and ended up at the Garage of the Horse and Groom pub to have a look at Underexposed and talk with the artists. Underexposed runs until 30th October.

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.

As well as contributing articles, she provides delightful illustrations, like the fabulous pirate day drawings to complement Kate Tym’s poem, and the stressed A-level student for Sean O’Shea’s column. She currently has an exhibition at The Weekend Gallery in Hastings Old Town. Erica Smith went along to see a whole new side of HOT’s talented ‘toonster.
