Maggi Hambling’s The Quick & the Dead

One of the most popular paintings in the Jerwood Gallery is Maggi Hambling’s Portrait of Frances Rose; when it is not on display, it is often enquired after. And our very own Erica Smith won the Jerwood short story prize with an imagined fictional account of Frances Rose’s life. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to the Jerwood to see Hambling’s exhibition, The Quick & the Dead.

Processions: a living portrait of C21st women

Processions is a mass participation artwork to mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which gave the first British women the right to vote. Processions will invite women and girls across the UK to come together on Sunday 10 June 2018 to mark this historic moment in a living, moving portrait of women in the 21st century. The Jerwood Gallery is supporting this initiative and invites you to participate.

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.

Fair cop: “Woman, 53” political graffiti verdict

In the early hours of the Wednesday before the general election, a woman of 53 walked around Hastings writing political messages across the town using a set of wipe-clean blackboard pens. Within a relatively short period of time she had ‘chalked up’ 50 messages, before a passer-by spotted her writing on the shiny tiled walls of the Jerwood Gallery and reported her to the police. She was arrested whilst she was contemplating writing on the pub blackboards outside the London Trader. HOT’s Erica Smith went to court to find out more.

Don’t Turn Back

Greeting the visitor in the Jerwood Gallery is a barrage of images. Surprising and extraordinary. It took HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths a few minutes to get her head around the display and focus on the array of drawings.
