Hastings Arts Forum is celebrating its first 15 years by holding an exhibition of paintings that will showcase the extraordinary quality and range of artists connected with Hastings and St. Leonards-on-Sea, together with a series of events and talks. The exhibition will feature paintings by a number of renowned artists, the quality of whose work has helped build the reputation of Hastings and St. Leonards-on-Sea as a centre of artistic excellence.
Hastings Arts Forum was founded in 2003 by a group of artists and art enthusiasts with a shared commitment to support and raise the profile of the visual arts in Hastings and St. Leonards-on-Sea. The Forum is now a registered charity and runs two adjoining gallery spaces on the seafront. The Forum is a not-for-profit organisation and is almost totally reliant on its many committed and experience volunteers. The gallery space offers professional artists the opportunity to submit work for exhibition at a reasonable price and gives all artist members the opportunity to show their work at the annual members show.
