New show celebrating Spring at old Observer
Hastings will have its own answer to Chelsea Flower Show as the Observer Building turns to nature for a show curated by Katya de Grunwald and Beth Smith.
Local artists included in this show include Ptolemy Mann, Anne Smith and Lisa Hardy. Jim Cooke and Yiorgos Nikiteas are wonderful photographers who live in Brighton. Other artists include John Blakemore, Jodie Carey, Kitty Jenkins, Richard Misrach, Hormazd Narielwalla.
Opening in the same week as Jack-in-the Green festival, Uncommon or Garden draws together a group of artists who approach the natural world obliquely. These artists capture the theatre of nature as it teems with life and growth, death and decay. The endless cycle of flourishing and decomposing is observed as the artists visualise the passage of time.
