Chalk artists’ show at Towner

From October 2-14 around 80 artists from the Chalk Gallery in Lewes will show their work at the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne, accompanied by the publication of a commemorative book. It is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10-5pm.

Chalk is an artist-run gallery devoted to promoting its artists and their work. This event has been a year in the planning, and the artists, past and present, feel “very privileged” to hold this exhibition according to Julie Snowball. She said: “It really is a special year for us all here at Chalk. We won Small Business of the Year in the Lewes District Business Awards, sponsored by Knill James, back in July. Winning this award is a great honour in this celebration year when we are publicly acknowledging the contribution of gallery members past and present.”
