Coastal Currents Artists Live Sessions

The sun has disappeared temporarily but we are still here and working hard on filling your Saturdays with amazing artists! This week we have two familiar Hastings faces who will be sharing their isolation creations plus their new projects now out of lockdown. 3pm Etienne Marcus Le Comte will be talking us through his process from a blank canvas right to his finished piece. We also will get to see Etienne's lockdown portraits which he has been caringly creating for NHS staff for free. Jump in at the end of Etienne's stream with any questions you have as he will be hosting a Q&A at the end! 4pm we are joining Megan Donfrancesco Reddy on West Street in Hastings Old Town where she runs The Dirty Old Gallery with two other artists. They have just reopened since lockdown and will be giving us a tour of the current exhibition, a charity show for Hastings and Bexhill Animal Sanctuary. The brief of the show is extinct animals and anyone was allowed to donate work. Megan will also give us a brief background to the gallery and all the artists that have been involved since they opened at the end of 2018. Tune in at 3pm Saturday 4th July to catch these beautiful faces! https://www.thedirtyoldgallery.com/https://www.facebook.com/SaveBnHRescue/#hastings #isolationstationhastings#coastalcurrentsartsfestivalCoastal CurrentsIsolation Station HastingsEtienne Marcus Le ComteThe dirty old gallery
