Alison Wilding

De La Warr Pavilion, Marina, Bexhill-on-Sea

Saturday June 23-Sunday September 16


Right Here and Out There is an exhibition of new and existing works by sculptor Alison Wilding selected in response to the landscape and the light. Her abstract works use contrasting materials such as neoprene rubber, translucent acrylic, mirrored glass, alabaster and steel to create sensual juxtapositions that explore the complexities of perception. The exhibition responds to the landscape that surrounds the Pavilion and light that streams into it, showing a selection of works from the 1980s to the present and two new sculptures made especially for the site.

Contemporary Enamel – Altered Surfaces and Sensitive Sifting

West Dean College, West Dean, Chichester

Saturday-Friday August 4-10


Jeweller Jessica Turrell teaches students to explore the application of enamel on altered metal surfaces to create jewellery. Students begin by investigating methods of patterning and texturing with the option of using silver, and then use a sifting technique, which allows the enamel to interact and be altered by the underlying surface.
