A Murmuration of artists

Bexhill is well known for its distinguished De La Warr Pavilion, but isn’t necessarily recognised for its galleries. However, Bexhill may be stirring its creative stumps. There is a recently opened gallery, Murmurations and where one treads more may follow. Intrigued by the name Murmurations, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see what was what.

Karma Gedden is a new and exciting fashion label being launched this year by Caragh Jane Logan. Caragh, a resident of Hastings, has been busy the last ten years singing and song writing. She studied textiles at university and, having always been interested in fashion, she wanted to rekindle her passion for design and so, dipped her toe in the water by showing and selling some of her work at The Brighton Designers’ Market last year. Enjoying this experience she decided to create her very British eccentric brand the wonderfully named, Karma Geddon. HOT Style writer, Bev Francis, reports.

In the Realm of Others

In the entrance to the De La Warr exhibition space is a soundscape of taps, slurps and strokes – of paint moving across canvas and paper. In front of that are large shelves stuffed full of an archive of canvases and paper. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was intrigued.

C’mon Hastings! Support the Campaign for Real Music!

Robert Draper, a participant composer in the upcoming International Composers’ Festival, has strong views as to how classical music should be – and they’re not in accord with the thinking of modern academia. Music, he believes, has greater worth when borne of  instinct; when a product of the soul. HOT’s Chris Cormack interviews him on his ideas and the music. Come to the International Composers’ Festival and find out more.

Bridget Riley explores the curve

At the age of 84 the artist Bridget Riley is still working, innovating and as enthusiastic about painting as she ever was. The latest show at the De La Warr Pavilion celebrates a particular aspect of her work: the Curve Paintings from 1961 to 2014. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to see the work of one of Britain’s greatest living artists.
