Showing at the Under Ground Theatre in Eastbourne this April is a maritime-themed exhibition featuring four unique and diverse local artists - each highly-skilled in their own field with their own individual style.
The combination of styles make an interesting exhibition giving four different perspectives on the maritime theme and showing the subject matter in a new light.
David Armitage is an established professional artist, who has had exhibitions not only across the UK, but also internationally. He will exhibit his illustrative works for The Lighthouse Keeper book series, which not only bring the stories to life, but are wonderful paintings in their own right.
Alan Everard’s paintings of ships at sea are detailed and accurate, yet also capture the movement and feeling of waves, sunsets and billowing sails. He is inspired by the view of the sea from his beach front home.
Colin Say is an experienced photographer; his work is technically superb as well as artistic and creative. High contrast light and dark, but also subtle shades and tones combined with interesting compositions give many of his photographs a painterly feel.
Mike Tann is a professional artist, selling a lot of his work in the USA. His work is highly contemporary and varied, including painting, collage and assemblage. We are very pleased to include his paintings of tug boats in the exhibition, which are reminiscent of pop artists such as David Hockney.
This free exhibition can be seen on Fridays (10am--12.30pm) and Saturdays (10am--4pm) and at all times open for events between Friday, April 4 to Saturday, April 26 - admission free.
