Meet Rachel Glittenberg, artist

Rachel Glittenberg is one of the 24 artists with work on show at Hastings Arts Forum from today (Wednesday 2 May) through to Sunday 13 May. The Festival 15 show has been curated to celebrate 15 years of Hastings Arts Forum and contains work from established Hastings artists like Angie Braven and Gus Cummins through to artists like Colden Drystone who is on the first rung of his art career. Glittenberg is somewhere between those two poles. Erica Smith talks to the artist about her work.

No Smoking

Colourful storytelling by Angie Braven

Angie Braven’s exhibition at the Fleet Gallery in St Leonards simply stops you in your tracks. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths noticed people coming into the gallery, looking around and sighing the word “colour”, as if the sun had just come out from behind a cloud.

Gus Cummins’ world

Walking into the Jerwood Foreshore Gallery there is an art work exploding out of the wall, stopping HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths in her tracks. It is the work of artist Gus Cummins. An inhabitant of Hastings for the past forty years; a Royal Academician and an artist who happens to be local – distinct from a local artist.

Strange goings-on at HAF

In the light of Surrealism #2  has already been flagged up in HOT. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see for herself the Hastings take on surrealism, and how it relates to Inverse Reflections in the adjoining Gallery.

Hastings Old Town – centre of creativity

When we told friends in France that we were moving to Hastings, there were mixed reactions.  The usual one was “Why Hastings?” asked with an air of perplexity.  That was easily dealt with – it had happened entirely by chance.  But one friend followed it up with – “but there won’t be any cultural life there”.  I know what she meant: there’s no theatre to speak of and precious little in the way of classical music, writes Antony Mair.
