A fold in time and space

Fold is a new exhibition by visual artist, Sharon Haward, who has thirty years experience of developing a multi-disciplinary practice hinging on the exploration of site and sense of place. She is exhibiting a range of assemblages and objects inspired by Modernist architecture and the contributions made to it by female and male architects and designers. The work on show has been created during a short residency at The School Creative Centre, Rye. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asks Sharon about the new exhibition, her inspirations and goals.

Playland

Playland is a project which was seen in five South East / South coast venues, including Electro Studios Project Space. Two of the public engagement projects were led by Hastings based artists: Sharon Haward & Nicole Zaaroura. Photos were taken by Nigel Green who lives in the borough & teaches at SCCH.

A photographic sense of place

It is certainly to be welcomed that there is a new gallery space in Hastings – at the former Observer building. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went there, with great anticipation, to see the PhotoHastings exhibition Pinups: A Sense of Place.

Art Station to Art Station…

Even after Coastal Currents, it is impossible to escape from art in this town… Last Thursday saw the opening of the second photography show at Hastings Station by a group of artists known collectively as ‘EDGE’. And this weekend, the forecourt of St Leonards Warrior Square station will become the arena for a very slow race by life-size garden gnomes, whilst the ‘SPACE’ next door will be the temporary home for installations by a group of Belgian artists. HOT’s Erica Smith sees her home town through alien eyes.

Exploring the Edge

Earlier this week, I went along to the Hastings Community Network’s Culture Exchanges meeting at The Jerwood, exploring art and culture in Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea – and one of the ideas as to how art could be brought to a wider community was ‘more art in public spaces – such as car parks, supermarkets and pubs’. The Edge, a newly formed collective of artists currently exhibiting at Hastings Station, agree 100% with this suggestion, ‘hoping to continue showing photography in unexpected places’. HOT’s Zelly Restorick went along to The Station Gallery to see the different interpretations of ‘Edge’.
