Alison Tyldesley & Diane Bailey: Clouds & Claws
26 May – 7 June 

Artists Diane Bailey and Alison Tyldesley are looking forward to exhibiting their work after having to cancel in April. Their show is our first step back into the gallery and to help you get to know the artists and their work we have put filmed interviews, along with plenty of information and images on our website.

The exhibition itself will be in the gallery, and we hope to be able to open the doors to visitors in a limited way after the 1st June. Until then, why not make a detour on your daily walk and enjoy their vibrant wildlife and landscape work through our windows.

Diane’s wildlife paintings sizzle with colour and create a close sense of connection with the creatures she depicts – which range from rabbits and rats to polar bears and monitor lizards – and most of which she has met in real life!

Alison’s dreamy landscapes enfold you in colour and remind you of mountains, moors, sand dunes or lakesides. At a time when being outdoors has even more significance than usual, these paintings bring a real sense of joy.

Doing things digital!

We are all getting used to living our lives online, and learning how to do more with digital every day. Here are a few current digital things to explore:

Digital Culture Network

Arts Council England has set up the Digital Culture Network specifically to help the arts and cultural sector access the potential of digital tools. Check out their YouTube channel for ‘How to’ films, and follow them on Twitter for links to webinars and all kinds of help and advice about finding the easiest and cheapest ways to make digital content, to market yourself and to generate income.

The Winged Things: Pip Carter

Publishing her new children’s chapter book as an e-book has been a first for local writer and illustrator Pip Carter. The Winged Things is a tale of nature versus mankind. It is set in a time before aeroplanes, when birds ruled the skies, and there were no cars on the streets. (Sounds strangely familiar though!). It’s a digital reading experience that supports a good cause with 10% royalties going to the RSPB.

The From Home Project

 The From Home project is asking people to send in 3 minute videos from their homes during these times of lockdown and social distancing.

Videos will form part of an installation to be shown at Brighton Digital Festival later this year, that could also tour afterwards, while an online project will form a lasting archive. 

Instagram for Beginners

If you didn’t catch this last week, don’t worry! This session is on our YouTube channel so you can watch any time and learn about how to get started with Instagram. We hope to add more to YouTube in the future, so why not subscribe now so that you don’t miss out on what’s coming up.
