About

This fantastic exhibition celebrates the diversity of artistic talent in Hastings and beyond. It features extraordinary pieces by artists working in painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography, digital, and mixed media.

Since the last Open in 2020, the world has changed and so have we. Against a backdrop of lockdown and post-pandemic life, our selected artists have found inspiration in people, nature, memories, dreamscapes, generation-defining moments, and in the everyday. The works capture and convey varied experiences over the last two years – with the beauty, sensitivity, humour, and heart of which only artists are capable.

With our biannual Open, the museum aspires to support the careers of contemporary artists and to share their work with the local community.

The work in this year's Open have been selected by our esteemed panel of judges:

Angela Childs – curator, chair and trustee of Hastings Arts Forum
Ellen Prebble – artist, Project Art Works
Patricia Finnegan – Artist Development Lead with Project Art Works
Euan Roberts – artist, co-founder and director of Big Yin Gallery
Fiona Denning – artist and chair of SoCo Artists
Kenton Lowe – arts practitioner and curator of blackShed Gallery
Laetitia Yhap – acclaimed artist and painter
Kasey Ball-Scott – Collections and Engagement Curator (Art), Hastings Museum & Art Gallery.
We would like to thank all of the featured artists and for those who applied to take part.
