Venue needed to promote talent

I WRITE in response to the letter from Pat Cumming in the Herald asking why local artists in Eastbourne have nowhere to exhibit their work.

I am also a member of a talented group of local artists and we are constantly searching for venues in which we can exhibit our work.

We have been part of several very successful exhibitions but have mainly had to hold these during the summer months in the outdoors where we are of course subject to the weather!

It does seem ironic that Eastbourne has spent millions on the Towner but doesn’t seem to want to recognise and promote its own considerable local talent!
