Saffron Streeten

Saffron Streeten is a young British artist who specializes in oil paintings and limited edition art prints.

This seaside exhibition will include some of my most recent artwork on seascapes and portraiture as well as my interior design (LE) art prints. Currently in my gap year I have been able to practice my portraiture through "The 100 Faces of Hastings", in which I will exhibit some of my original sketches. This project introduced me to 100 new people and 1000 new opportunities.

Therefore in this exhibition I want to celebrate our supportive community and highlight our beautiful environment.

Mike Funnell: The Old Town and Beyond

This exhibition contains some of the paintings I've produced in the last five years, many being inspired by my love of Hastings Old Town though some were the result of travels further afield to such places as Cornwall and Venice.

My motivation is simple- it's the world around me, from the ordinary to the extraordinary, from the crumbling plaster work on a once grand building, through to that magical moment when the sun bursts through the clouds and shines a spot light on the gouged and gorgeous face of Rock a Nore 'sat high and proud over the Old Town.

I'm fascinated by changing light and its effect on a view and like to explore how different mediums lend themselves to different subjects.

Daniela Exley and Samantha Guertin: Ode to the Sea

Daniela Exley is a photographer who has been working on editorial and commercial commissions since graduating from Brighton University in 2003. During 2020, when her work dried up due to lockdowns, she found that picking up the camera and tuning into creative endeavours (and sea swimming!!!) was her way to get through it all.

Samantha’s paintings in the Snug are predominantly a response and homage to the sea and those who interact with it, beside it and in it. Seeking to catch something of the particular moment, Samantha sets water against skies, cloud formations, light and dark. The intention is to capture the essence of the scene, inviting the viewer to share this vision.

Hastings Pride

Hastings Pride Artists present PRIDE at The Crown.

Come and see over 35 local artists and 50 pieces of art and design celebrating Hastings Pride 2021.

Russell Dorey

My work is primarily Still Life. I make meticulous drawings and finely crafted paintings in oil on canvas. My paintings are formal compositions, measured and plotted, reduced and balanced. Some of the canvasses have been worked for months and a few arrived like gifts; they are little visual poems. Some of the paintings have a narrative, some sort of a story connecting the objects, but the shapes and colours should be reason enough.

Cheryl Bell

Cheryl Bell is an artist and printmaker based in Hastings. She is primarily a wildlife artist, and her work often features endangered birds. For this series of paintings she has been experimenting with oils, using Cobra, a non-toxic, water soluble oil paint from The Netherlands.

Chris Mammone

These images are from a body of work made photographing the working lives of Hastings fishermen, an industry that lies at the heart of Hastings heritage and identity. The images are digital prints from work made on black and white film between 2012-2014.

Rachel Mammone

Rachel is a Hastings based artist, having grown up locally she is inspired by the surrounding landscapes and skies, painting coastal and celestial inspired artworks.

Each painting is created using a mix of pigments and watercolours and exhibited are both original paintings and prints. Every piece created features beautiful nature inspired colours – from the sea to the sky, and everything in between.
