MAKING WAVES

8 October 2022 – 12 March 2023

10 artworks for 10 amazing years of contemporary and modern art in Hastings.

Hastings Contemporary presents this special exhibition to celebrate its 10th year anniversary, since it opened its doors in 2012. It will include 10 artworks from some of the astonishingly talented artists that have exhibited in the gallery in the past, such as Chantal Joffe, Rose Wylie, Maggi Hambling and Quentin Blake.

Over the last 10 years the response to the art we have shown has been phenomenal. We have alumni artists to be proud of, constantly punching well above our weight, whilst receiving awards and strong reviews.  The ever-increasing visitors to our exhibitions from the local community and further afield demonstrate that Hastings has a vital role to play in artistic exchange. Since opening our doors as the Jerwood Gallery, over 350,000 people have visited our exhibitions, with many more engaging in our learning and participation programmes.

Here is to many more exhibitions to come, showcasing emerging and established artists and their work, making Hastings Contemporary a cultural hub of regional, national and international significance.
