I visited Hastings for the first time (since I was very small anyway) a couple of weeks ago in order to see the new Jerwood Gallery. Having found the lovely gallery (see below), the next things to catch my eye were the wonderful fishermen's net huts next door. I was inspired to do some painting when I got home. One example is below.
I then moved on to the purpose of my visit. The new Jerwood Gallery only opened a few weeks ago and it's not huge but I loved it and will definitely be going back. The current exhibition is by Rose Wylie who was new to me. You can see one of her paintings in the background in the photo below (Silent Light (film notes) 2008).
I also really enjoyed looking at the items from the Jerwood Collection which were on display, in particular those by Paul Feiler, Adrian Heath and a lovely Lowry. It's well worth the trip down to Hastings - you can find more details on the gallery's website.
I've also been doing some more knitting for a little yarnstorm project (I call it a yarnstorm but as I'm planning to storm something of my own, in my house, I'm pretty sure that doesn't count), a sneak peak of which is here. Hoping to be ready for the big reveal in a couple of weeks' time!
