Animal Logic: is this my best side?

Walking down Norman Road, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths stopped in her tracks to look at Guy the Gorilla staring out through the bars of his cage. Just as when Guy was alive he attracted attention, so he does in this photography exhibition,  Animal Logic. There are many excellent wildlife photographers but Austrian photographer, Wolfgang Suschitzky, is somewhat different.

SoCo strong and fragile at HAF

It is always interesting to go to a curated show as opposed to an all members exhibition. It gives space and development to the artists and more clarity to the viewer. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths dropped in to SoCo (South Coast Artists) first curated Showcase of eleven artists selected from membership submissions.

Reasons to stay in Europe

On both sides here has been much anger, lies and, at times, debate that would embarrass a four-year-old. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths asked a few local Hastings and St Leonards-ites about their thoughts and concerns on Europe and why they are in favour of remaining.

Artists looking at themselves, looking at you

Self-portraiture is always a fascinating subject for artists. How to show off your best side, your personality and how to incorporate yourself into your style of painting. In anticipation of how artists see themselves, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see The Painter Behind the Canvas at the Jerwood Gallery.

Uncommon or garden flower show

For those of you who are not going to the Chelsea Flower Show or can’t quite take the press of people, there is a gem of a flower show at the Observer Building, Uncommon or Garden. Hot’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to smell the roses.

Root 1066 celebrates Battle of Hastings

This year – 2016 – is the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. Hastings’ attitude is celebrate while you can – why wait 50 years when you might not be around to commemorate the 1,000th? So this year, Hastings is marking the date with an international contemporary festival of the arts, ROOT 1066. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to talk to Festival Director, Polly Gifford about what will be happening.

Prunella Clough at the Jerwood

It is always fascinating to see the journey an artist has travelled during their lifetime. Some continue to mine the same theme, others turn somersaults, change and develop. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was delighted to see the gamut of Prunella Clough’s paintings at the exhibition, Unknown Countries in the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings.
