Young talent on display at Hastings Arts Forum

Hastings and St Leonards have a long tradition of creative energy and artistic exuberance. Historically, the town has drawn artists, writers and musicians, who have created work that is recognised nationally as well as internationally. But little recognition has been given to our very young, emerging talent. Until now, as an exhibition at the Hastings Arts Forum, Primary Art, Hastings and St. Leonards Young Artists, so well demonstrates, writes HAF member John Cole, who also took the photos.

Two worlds on view at Hastings Arts Forum

Most people feel reluctant to travel in these landlocked Covid times. Yet it is still possible to ‘travel’ to various places in memory while exploring documentaries, films, food in Italian, Spanish, French, Indian restaurants. And at exhibitions. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths explored the Two Worlds art exhibition at Hastings Arts Forum – the work of photographer Brian Rybolt

A colourful journey from Mexico, via Nice  to Hastings

Although we are always surrounded by colour, the changing tones of the sea, sky and trees the world has seemed a little bleak of late. So it is interesting to be reminded of the strength of colour – reds, oranges, blues and greens – that can lift a mood and evoke memories.  HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths found colour writ large in Harriet Macaree’s paintings at Hastings Arts Forum.

Change comes to Hastings Arts Forum

It is with great relief that galleries, pubs and restaurants are now allowed to open. Albeit with social distancing. People have been so desperate for a bit of culture that in London, apparently, it has been difficult to book a time slot to visit. So Hastings Arts Form is open again, in a new guise. HOT’ Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see and spoke to Martin Bradshaw about the changes.
