Martyrs’ Gallery and Project Space

Star Brewery • between Fisher Street and Castle Ditch Lane • Lewes • BN7 1YJ • 01273 479155 • Facebook Twitter


Exhibition: 5–25 May, 12 noon–5pm (Thu–Sun)

Experimental glass artist Alison Allum exploits her medium’s qualities of allure, fragility and danger to explore the contradictory experiences of modern womanhood. Combining classic beauty with a knowing theatricality, her collection of glass shoes and drawings portrays a much fetishised aspect of femininity and tempers it with an undercurrent of radicalism and wit.

Friday 4 May, 6pm

Private View: Refreshments from 6pm.

Friday 11 & 25 May, 10am–12 noon

Martyrs’ Writing Group: Writers of fiction or non-fiction can use the gallery space free of charge for a calm, quiet, untutored drop-in session, inspired by the current exhibition (bring own materials and refreshments).
