Inspired by our locality, this collection display explores the edge of the Sussex landscape.
Our coastline has long been an inspiration for artists – including Edward Bawden, John Piper, Eric Ravilious and Eric Slater, a forgotten Sussex print maker whose colour woodcuts will be on diplay for the first time in 70 years.
These artists were captivated by the beauty and drama that unfold where the South Downs meet the sea, and shingle beaches neighbour the heart stopping white cliffs of Beachy Head.
The ferry port at Newhaven was particularly influential as the gateway to Europe – transcending the edge of the landscape to connect Sussex to the rest of the world.
