Secret of the sea is a new themed art exhibition on the Stade, Hastings, reflecting the specific site of this location where fishing is said to have taken place for a millenium. It will be shown from May 12-19.
This second group exhibition by local collective South Coast Printmakers uses the medium of printmaking to convey a diverse range of styles and individual viewpoints about the sea. Exhibitors Amanda Averillo, Ian Barraclough, Sue Batt, Jane Beecham, Cheryl Bell, John Booth, Alex Leadbeater and Will Taylor are all practising contemporary local artists who will feature etchings, screen- prints, collagraphs and monotypes to showcase their different approaches and promote the potential of printmaking as an underrated art form.
This venture will provide a thought-provoking perspective on the sea that gives this region its unique identity, as well as providing an opportunity for visitors to buy original new artwork.
