The Chalk Gallery in Lewes hosted a special event to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Since the gallery opened, over 100 local artists have benefited from exhibiting, and learning new skills through collectively running the business. Chalk artists made cup cakes to serve to the many guests who were there including the new Mayor of Lewes, Susan Murray, with fortunately good weather to accommodate the marquee outside the gallery.
Chalk artists were delighted to see so many people and from October 2-14 the success of this enterprise will be further celebrated in a special exhibition at the Towner Gallery, Eastbourne, showing work from current and ex-members and opened by artist Julian Sutherland Beatson. This event will be accompanied by the publication of a commemorative book.
