Summer begins in Worthing. Check out what’s on in June.

Exhibition // 1 – 6 June // 10.00 – 17.00 daily

Seven artists in this group show all share a fascination with flowers. From Dianna Jaswinski’s sumptuous photographic studies to delicate jewellery by Jane Pinder. Not only will there be prints and cards and textiles to buy, but also flowers and plants will be for sale, courtesy of Heavy Gretel and Honeybridge Flowers. And if looking at the wonderful work on show makes your fingers itch to start making your own, there will be live demos and info about workshops and classes.


Lucia & Cassius: Him & Me
Exhibition // 8 – 13 June // 10.00 – 17.00 daily

Mother and son Lucia and Cassius have nothing in common artistically except their DNA and a shared love of putting brush or pen to paper to reflect their view of the world. Lucia paints colourful semi-abstract work, while for Cassius it’s pen and ink and an eye for detail. A shared love of art unites them in this show and they invite you to come and explore their worlds.


Exhibition // 15 – 20 June // 10.00 – 17.00 daily

Stepping away from the pressures of a high flying job is a brave move, and sometimes a necessity. The three artists in this show have all navigated big changes and found a new direction through art. Whether portraits of canine companion Reef and his friends, or capturing the intense light of Florida beaches, this show takes a fresh look at the world. 


Ruth Mulvie & Claire Knill: The Great Escape
Exhibition // 22 June – 4 July // 10.00 – 17.00 daily (Closed Monday 28 June)

Dip your toes in the fantasy worlds created by Ruth Mulvie where parrots fly and glamour reigns. Ruth’s colours are as delicious as ice-cream and hot as July and she’s one to watch as her work gets ever more popular here and abroad. Showing alongside her is Claire Knill whose kinetic installations bring a sense of peace and calm as they move through kaleidoscopic combinations of shapes and colours. This show will bring summer to the gallery even if it’s raining outside, and you can take a piece of sunshine home with you.


Worthing Portrait Artist of the Year 2021

Entries close soon for this year’s competition that could win you a place in a live portraiture event at The Venue with celebrity life models. The competition was last run in 2019 when it was won by Mark Oliver – this year it could be you!


Mural Commission in Worthing

The Coastal Office on Worthing seafront is celebrating the success of the Help Our Kelp campaign with a mural commission to give the public more insight into the value of the kelp forest and how it supports the marine environment. The brief will be available to download from this page by 2 June.


Alice needs your stories

Alice Mara is looking for two more stories from Lancing residents for her sculpture project at Brooklands. It doesn’t have to be crazy or unusual, just a memory that is evoked by a particular Lancing building. So far, Alice has collected stories about the Sailing Club, the Luxor Cinema and the Empire Club, so if you have one to add get in touch!


Residency Opportunity

Blast Theory are based in Portslade and work internationally across interactive and immersive digital art (and so much more). They are launching a new round of their residency programme with three opportunities up for grabs.
