Land Marks: Art in Romney Marsh – where the great outdoors steps inside

Art in Romney Marsh is a truly special part of the acclaimed Coastal Currents, where site-specific works of art and performances take up their places in six medieval churches across the Marsh. In truth, the works of art cannot be divorced from the churches which house them, or the wetlands which provide both context and backdrop. As Martin-Paul Everett, one of the featured artists, observed: “The churches are the real stars here… you can’t really compete with them”. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson made the pilgrimage and pauses for reflection.

Jennifer Baird: Jungle Spirits and Humming Bird

Hastings IS the ideal landscape

Hastings Arts Forum is currently showing two exhibitions: The Ideal Landscape (Nigel Oxley and Claudia de Grandi) and West Indies to West Hill (Jennifer Baird). The images in each are very different – but they are nevertheless linked by the common theme of ‘journey’. West Indies to West Hill charts Jennifer Baird’s spiritual and geographical transition from the wild rain forests of Tobago to the quirky eccentricity of Hastings; The Ideal Landscape provides a visual documentation of Nigel Oxley’s journey to Snowdonia following a family bereavement. Claudia de Grandi celebrates the journey from pure painter to intaglio printer.

Ness Mann: Dive

Real Lives at the Kave

When Julia Andrews-Clifford and Ness Mann first met at a children’s group in Hastings, they had no idea of the exciting, shared journey ahead of them. Initially, they were overwhelmed by the number of parallel experiences they had in common, and their friendly chats soon evolved into a very creative partnership. The current exhibition at The Kave gallery, Real Lives, is a significant landmark in that journey. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson finds out more about their real lives and art.

Jerwood Collection Revealed; In Focus: Alfred Wallis

No sooner has the Jerwood hosted a nude flashmob in the hope of attracting Spencer Tunick to Hastings, than it open its doors to Jerwood Collection: Revealed. This stunning exhibition celebrates the growth of the Jerwood Foundation’s small private collection into a major collection of 20th and 21st century British Art. The gallery also features a smaller exhibition – In Focus: Alfred Wallis. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson, accompanied by Assistant Curator Victoria Howarth, toured the exhibition.
