Sun Sea Art & Chips - a day out at De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill
Living in Sussex we are very spoilt when it comes to art and the seaside and the best place to enjoy this is the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill.
With a combination of amazing art deco architecture, amazing exhibitions and light that is much the same as the kind you find on the Cornish coast, Bexhill has all the makings of a great day out.
At the moment, the De La Warr has an exhibition showcasing Simon Patterson's work, Safari: An Exhibition As Expedition
'' People often make sense of the world through language, maps, museological classifications, military codes and routines: Simon Patterson manipulates these mechanisms, shifting our perceptions as a result. Safari combines works from the last twenty-five years of Patterson’s career with two new commissions.''
We really enjoyed the exhibition and gave us food for thought, along with some future ideas for my needle felting, perhaps the picture above might lend a clue?
Visiting Bexhill always comes with a must, fish and chips on the beach!
It was such a warm day, the tide was going out and the beach was quiet compared to Brighton where we live.
We took our sketchbooks and paints to have a little creative time, the light was amazing which made the sky was so blue, the rust on the groynes rich in colour.
Such a perfect day which we must hold on to when days are bleak and the world struggles to live in harmony.
