Day Trip to Farley Farm
Just in time for the summer holidays, Farleys House and Garden presents a breathtaking exhibition by Sir Peter Blake, heralded as the Godfather of British Pop Art. As with all the exhibitions at Farleys Gallery, works are for sale. Blake is probably best known for co-creating the highly acclaimed album sleeve art for the Beatles’ Sgt.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

• “Day Trip to Farley Farm” Sundays, 9th June-4th August. Gallery is free and open Sundays 10am to 4.30pm. The Lee Miller archives will also continue to show on various Sundays until October. Farleys House & Gallery Muddles Green, Chiddingly. 

In Paths Taken
New exhibition at Elisabeth Bauer Contmemporary Art Space. Photography performance in series by Kay Sobolewska. Photography performance in series, drawings and moving image by Victoria Kiff. Poetry by Eve Ruschin. Photography performance by Bonnie Kiff. Drawing and digital media by Marie-Louise Miller.

“The making and presentation of the images allow the artist to construct and perform visually their identities as a spectator in
an alternative reality.”

Opens on 13th June 2019, continues until 7th July 2019. 55 George Street, Hastings Old Town, East Sussex TN34 3EE.

Experienced writer and journalist Ian Probart presents a series of figurative watercolours considering singers and musicians who have tragically died young. Ian spent much of his career writing about boxing, but his move into art and painting is certainly worth investigation. Ian’s work will be on show at Hastings Arts Forum from 11th-23rd June. 

Open Studio and Painting Sale
Local artist Ben Fenton’s work will be visible and on sale at Common Mormon Studios, 2a Mount Pleasant Road, Hastings, on Sunday 23rd June, from10am-4pm.

As Long As My Arm 
A list of local artists show photography, painting, and sound art at the Dirty Old Gallery on West Street. This series of work brings together a range of artists working with a broad palette of techniques to express aspects of the human condition, and how it can clash – and work together – with nature.

Exhibition runs Saturdays and Sundays throughout June 12.00pm – 5.00pm ish. A limited edition book collecting the artists’ work may be available, price £10 and published by local Silverhill Press.
