Rooms for Ideas

Rooms for Ideas


The Hastings Museum and Art Gallery’s current exhibition celebrates the work (picture) of nine local artists. Each artist has taken as their inspiration a room at the museum, and fashioned jewellery and random objects that reflect their personal response to that room. Some have chosen a well-known landmark, or a specific era, to inspire their work. For example, Wendy-Sarah Pacey designs wearable steel wire structures based on the images of the interior renovation of St Mary in the Castle. Jennifer Kidd makes talismanic jewellery and amulets, taking as her theme, day and night, the spirit world, and our world, and placing them, literally and figuratively, within the exhibits of the museum’s sub-Arctic room.
o Artists: Susanne Freytag, Jennifer Kidd, Amy Madge, Jo McAllister, Wendy-Sarah Pacey, Jane Runchman, Paula Thittichai, Julie Tucker-Williams and Maxime Wareham. Rooms For Ideas runs at The Hastings Museum and Art Gallery until the 19th February 2012. Info: 451052.
