The gallery’s latest exhibition opens on March 26th and will run till April 22nd.
For this exhibition curator Charlotte Still has invited artists to respond to the theme of Ponds and Water. The exhibition includes 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 runs in tandem with other WATERWEEK events.
The forthcoming now-open exhibition at Gallery North, Hailsham, promises to be as controversial as the subject it addresses.
The exhibition’s curator, Julie Ford, writes:
‘Diversion’ will explore artists’ reactions to the 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 a production 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’ derives 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 opens February 4 and runs to March 18
