Somewhere to find artistry

WHAT links art with the busy A22 road?

The answer lies at The Hop Gallery in Lewes, where an established group of artists is staging an exhibition from tomorrow (Saturday) until May 20.

They call themselves Art22 because they live in the Eastbourne and East Grinstead areas and spend much time travelling up and down the main road that links the towns to plan and discuss their work.

Many met originally at the Eastbourne College of Art and have remained in contact ever since.

The current exhibition, entitled ‘Somewhere’, will feature paintings, prints, photographs and sculpture both abstract and figurative.

Ten years after their inaugural exhibtion, Art22 shows works by 13 member artists.
