The current exhibition is Portrait and the Figure.
The third exhibition of 2017 was ALCHEMY. It featured textiles and glasswork as well as a range of art by the resident artists, had its preview on Saturday 29th April, and ran from 2nd May through to 3rd June.
The gallery’s second exhibition of the year opened on March 26th and ran till April 22nd.
For this exhibition curator Charlotte Still invited artists to respond to the theme of Ponds and Water. The exhibition included work by Judith Alder, Xaverine Bates, Christine Binnie, Nichola Bruce, Glenys Jacques, Emily Johns, Frances Law, Bern O’donaghue, Victoria Threfall, Material Collective and a number of the gallery’s Resident Artists.
The exhibition ran in tandem with other WATERWEEK events.
The gallery’s first exhibition of 2017 was specially curated by artist Julie Ford.
DIVERSION explored artists’ reactions to the then current transformation of the High Street, Hailsham, a project begun in late summer, 2016, and scheduled to end sometime in the spring of 2017. The scale of an enterprise requiring removal of the road surface, kerbing, portions of sidewalks and reshaping and recovering the High Street and connecting George Street is matched only by a similar dismantling of nearby North Street in 2007 to make way for a Tesco superstore and car park.
‘Diversion’ derived its name from the signs directing pedestrians and motorists through a maze of barriers and fencing bordering both the High Street and George Street.
‘Diversion’ at Gallery North opened February 4 and ran to March 18
