Roland Jarvis

Roland Jarvis through his daughter’s eyes

It is not altogether fanciful to refer to Roland Jarvis as an extraordinary man. He was in his eighties when in 2015 he had his first one-person show in Hastings, at the Fleet Gallery. Reviewed at the time by Lauris Morgan-Griffiths, it was an exhilarating exhibition laying out his talents in  his paintings, drawings and installations. Following his death last year, a retrospective has opened at the same gallery. Lauris recalls the man through the eyes of his daughter.

The Hastings Way to Film

Is there a Hastings school of film? A style of film-making distinct to the area and its people? After all Hastings “is one of the most creative parts of the UK” as artist Gary Dorking remarked recently here in Hastings Online Times. A recent programme of films under the title ‘Arrow in the eye’ at the Electric Palace on May 13 sought to answer this question, and Richard Hull watched and listened with keen attention.
