A new arts trail for Seaford will be unveiled at the Crypt Gallery in Seaford this weekend (November 14 and 15) following in the footsteps of 1930s artist Eric Slater whose colour woodcuts will also be on show.

Visitors will be able to see a preview of a Slater Trail noticeboard which will soon be on permanent display on the seafront.

There will also be a film outlining the two-hour walk which features five of his best known images.

Eric Slater (1896-1963) moved to Seaford in 1929 and spent the next decade producing about 40 colour woodcuts of the landscape around his home.

He had international success in the 1930s but his career was cut short by the war and he died in obscurity.

The show runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm on both days. Details of the trail at www.ericslater.co.uk
