Zoom Arts group show about to open

Zoom Arts is about to open a new exhibition, a group show at the Warrior Square gallery. Meanwhile local visual artists interested in joining are invited to the group’s next meeting in late September. Nick Terdre reports.

Zoom Arts new group show at the Zoom Gallery outside Warrior Square station runs from Monday 13 to Tuesday 21 September. Everyone is also welcome to attend the private view on Friday 17th, says media contact Maxine Simmonds.

Among the dozen or so members exhibiting work is photographer Rob Maxted, the sole remaining founder of the group which was started in 2013. Also on view will be the bright, joyous mixed media work of long-standing group member Anna Bachène and photography inspired by flora from the natural world by Kim Hall, the group’s secretary.

Helen O’Leary, back from her London exhibitions, will be showing thought-provoking textile and mixed media and Denise O’Neil her bold and expressive seascape oil paintings.

Any local visual creatives who would like the opportunity to exhibit their  work but are unsure where to start and think they might benefit from being a member of this active group should get in touch or attend one of the monthly meetings where members plan future exhibitions and attend to admin, Simmonds says.

The next meeting will be at 7.30pm on Thursday 30 September at the Southwater Area Community Centre in Stainsby Road on the opposite side of Warrior Square station (TN37 6LA). Several Zoom members also have work on show at the community centre’s current art show.


Zoom Arts Group Show Zoom Gallery, Warrior Square Station, St Leonards-on-Sea, TN37 6HL. Monday 13-Tuesday 21 September, 11am-4pm. Private view Friday 17 September, 7-9pm.
