AS a local artist I am replying to Elizabeth Wright who wrote in the Herald on December 2: “Poor quality paintings are a huge waste of money”.
I would just like to say to her get down to Towner, look at the original pictures and study the artists’ work.
It is never a good idea to make snap judgements when criticising art or when crossing the road, especially with your eyes shut!
Last summer’s John Piper exhibition was one of the best, brilliant drawing, atmospheric and much with a Sussex interest.
Towner should also be congratulated for acquiring two John Piper paintings to add to their collection.
Having an internationally acclaimed gallery in our town is an asset so visit, look and enjoy.
