As one festival ends, another begins. Well, they all overlap actually. Summer Trifle, Artwave, South East Open Studios, Coastal Currents, Eastbourne Open Houses, Chiddingly Festival and Hailsham Festival – a lot happens in this region!
For the past 1O years I’ve been helping to organise Hailsham Festival of Arts and Culture and this is my final year. The committee is in good shape and I can step back knowing it’s in good hands. It’s always difficult to let go! This year I’ve only been concentrating on coordinating the art trail which starts on 14th September. Some venues are actually already up and running but the official dates are 14th to 23rd. Over 80 artists are showing work in 19 venues in and around the town. See all the details on the main festival website and on the Art Trail Facebook page.
I am showing work in 3 venues: 1 the Festival Information centre – a pop up shop in the middle of Hailsham High Street and a showcase for anyone exhibiting on the art trail; 2 the Little Arts Festival exhibition in Dunn Hall in Rushlake Green; 3 the Bluebell Barn exhibition at Bates Green in Arlington. Please do come along and see my latest works.
