Ian Barraclough

This exhibition is predominantly figurative and includes illustrative and printmaking work. The range of media used include pencil, inks, acrylic, pastel, collage, screenprint, monotype, collograph and wood/linocuts on both paper and canvas. Much of the art will be exhibited for the first time, with a proportion of the work taking Hastings and the South East coast as its subject matter. Ian Barraclough usually shows his work in London galleries but has chosen to launch his new work locally, at the gallery at Hastings Arts Forum.


Inverse Reflection

Lorrain Mailer and Sally Meakins

‘There is more than one way to look at, evaluate and understand any given situation’.

In this show, two artists investigate and respond to a shared interest in how we experience, explore, represent and communicate ideas. This exhibition is, in part, a result of their individual responses to a series of phone conversations with each other which took place over time.

The artists will be available to discuss the work at the following times

Friday 18th August 12-2pm

Wednesday 16th August 12-2pm

Sally & Lorrain
Saturday 26th August 12-2pm
Sunday 3rd September 2-5pm


In the Light of Surrealism #2

The exhibition will show the range of work currently being undertaken by selected artists and makers who use Surrealism, even if unconsciously, as a basis for their ideas and intentions. Few artists today would describe themselves as a Surrealist and yet may well acknowledge elements of Surrealism in their work.

All work will incorporate the essence of the unexpected with elements that have a thought provoking take on reality.

Curated by artist Jo Welsh the exhibition includes works by Brian Catling RA, Gus Cummins RA, Kathleen Fox, Jane Hoodless, Antony Penrose, Katherine Reekie, Jo Redpath, Tim Riddihough, Mick Rooney RA and Jacob Welsh.
