Sally-Mae’s lively and colourful paintings, prints, cards and linocuts will all have a connection to her daughter Debby Van Dyk who so sadly died of cancer at the age of fourty three in September 2018. The exhibition will be Sally-Mae’s interpretations of local landscapes as Debby and her young family lived here for nearly five years. Sally-Mae will also travel the UK and abroad bringing other sea, rural, city and mountain landscapes to life as a celebration of a wonderful woman.

Solace is an interactive sound and video installation inspired by The Sussex Downs. It has been designed to get local families involved in more experimental art. Taking place over summer 2019 to spring 2020, it will invite audiences to ask questions about our relationship to open and urban space, wellbeing and digital authenticity.
The work will be created by artists Karen Tilley and Kevin Grist and inspired by digital content captured by local people. The project includes several strands:
Nature recording workshops - families go into natural settings in Seaford, Ditchling and Eastbourne on the hunt for interesting sounds and videos, using digital software to record and manipulate.
Record your garden - local people are encouraged to record sounds and video from their own garden, and submit to us digitally.
Solace exhibitions - the installation will tour 3 public galleries, responding differently to each space interactively.
Artist talks - the artists and supporting technicians will hold a series of talks and CPD sessions to share learning about interactive design and engaging people with experimental art.
The interactive installation which will be exhibited at The Crypt Gallery in October, will feature sound and visual recordings collected from the Nature Recording workshops which are taking place in August, at the Seven Sisters Country Park. Participants of the family-friendly workshops will turn their mobile devices into field recorders, and will have chance to experiment with the sound recordings and video footage they capture, which will be incorporated into the installation.
Simon Parke repeats his talk on Julian Of Norwich .
Julian of Norwich, contemporary of both Chaucer and Langland, was the first woman to write a book in English. Yet remarkably, she disappeared from view for 600 years, before her rediscovery in the 20th century.
Who was she? Why did she pray for a near-death experience and then choose containment in a cell? And how, amid these traumatic times, did she speak with such optimism? Simon talks about this fascinating woman.
A veritable extravaganza of art and craft brought to you throughout December right up until just before Christmas. The Collective will be showcasing high quality work from established and emerging talent and there will be plenty of opportunity to buy unique gifts and treats for the festive season direct from this eminent group of local artists and makers. Quality, diversity and affordability are their guiding principles that have made their shows so popular and highly regarded.

The Sussex Arts Collective’s exhibitions are a true expression of the wealth and range of outstanding creative talent we have in our region. This, their first full scale exhibition of the year, brings together work from across their membership. Over 3 artists and crafts people presenting new pieces for 2019 from a broad and eclectic range of work in: sculpture, painting, fine art printmaking, jewellery, ceramics, glass, textiles, photography and wood.
In the ancient and beautiful setting of the Crypt's Undercroft, Simon reflects on Julian's life and times, her difficulties and her hope, including readings from his novel about her, 'The Secret Testament of Julian'. Followed by Q&A.
The natural world and our place within it lie at the centre of Katy Oxborrow’s art. Drawn to ancient sites, where history merges with myth and nature, to the edge where land and sea converge, Katy walks, explores and researches her surroundings, before she paints to reveal her physical and emotional connection to it.
Athena Jane Churchill creates installations and imaginary worlds, bringing together strands of her work in theatre set design, visual art installation, making and curating. Her work invites viewers to step into a world between the real and the imagined and journey within. Inspired by and exploring the relationship between museum collection, archive and created artefacts, her work reflects her fascination with traces of memory in heritage objects, myths and ancient devotional sites.
