FRESH AiR 18

10–11 February, 17–18 February, 24–25 February, 12 noon–4pm

Our artist-in-residence programme is back for a 3rd iteration, featuring 3 very different artists, each inviting you to share and contribute to their experimental art practice.

From 5 February, Pippa Ward will be working in the gallery with found objects and reclaimed plastic waste, playing with form, texture and colour to explore our use of – and relationship with – disposable materials. Pippa will be sharing the outcome of her experiments in a two-day pop-up show on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 February. See more of Pippa’s work at https://vimeo.com/116206307.

From 12 February, Glynde-based Jacky Misson presents 99 Ways to Map a Walk, an immersive installation that will retell 99 people’s versions of the same walk through Lewes. Visitors to the gallery on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings are invited to contribute to Jacky’s preparation for the final installation, which is on show on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 February. Read more on Jacky’s blog at https://jackymisson.com/.

Finally, Tamsin Spargo brings her London-based practice to Lewes from 19 February, when she will cover the gallery in paper and begin a week of drawing as part of a very public process. Visitors to the gallery throughout the week are invited to add, subtract, create or destroy alongside her, in a process that weathers her drawings and subverts their meaning. Meet Tamsin from Tuesday to Saturday and see her work on display until Sunday 25 February.
