 Upcoming Exhibitions

Every year Zoom Arts presents a group exhibition of work for auction, the sale of work is directly donated to a different charity each year.

This year Zoom Arts will be raising money for Hastings Supports Refugees.

Hastings Supports Refugees have already raised over £7,000 through their hard work which has been spent on shelter for the Calais camp, getting vital aid to the Greek Islands, and has provided several volunteer groups across Europe with financial assistance when they need it most.

Zoom Arts will be displaying artwork including photography at the Zoom Arts Gallery, Warrior Square Station, St Leonards from 26th June for one week, open daily from 10am to 4pm. An auction will be held on 1st July at 2pm - this will be a chance for members of the public to buy high quality art at knock down prices whilst helping a worthy cause.
One Man in a Waiting Room - 3 Exhibition by Nick Hill
Local artist Nick Hill was born in Newcastle, and educated in France and America. He has worked mostly in the catering industry both in France and England, along with stints in Forestry work and ten years working with people with learning disabilities.
He started painting 10 years ago, as a way of fighting an ongoing struggle with depression of which he has suffered most of his adult life - “I find the action of painting, or being artistically creative, therapeutic as well a catalyst or self reflection, giving me the possibility to analyse myself in a positive manner.”
In the past Nick has used his art to exorcise his demons looking into themes such as mental health, child abuse, drink and drug abuse and radicalisation, subjects that Nick fell victim to during his misspent youth. Since leaving art school, where he spent 6years studying for an art degree, which he felt had nearly been soul destroying, Nick has carried on working from home creating pieces which he eventually hopes to sell to raise money for different charities - “In the past two years I have raised over one thousand pounds for Cystic Fibrosis, and Dementia, and this year I hope to sell my work for the charity Mind, which is obviously close to me.”
Nick usually works around a theme, which is at present nautical subjects such as fish, boats and maritime landscapes, and despite the content of his work having mellowed into something more cheerful and uplifting it remains colourful, humorous, and slightly surreal. He enjoys very much being a member of Zoom Arts where he gets the chance to show his work to the public 5 or 6 times a year and also finds it liberating to work with an unpretentious group of artists who are not entirely motivated by their own egos, sales and profiles. His new solo show at the Zoom Gallery, Warrior Square Station, St Leonard’s opens from the 16th to 22nd July from 10am to 5pm daily, and will consist of mixed media pieces, old and new, and he hopes to bring a smile to the viewing public, if he does, he will have achieved his goal.

Extravaganza of Colour at Zoom Gallery 10th – 15th July 2017 10am4pm daily
Warrior Square Train Station St Leonards
TN37 6HL
An eye catching spectacle of colour and texture and an inspiring display of talent, introducing Art Students of “Mixed Media & Acrylic Painting Workshops”, plus local artist Christina Macadam will be presenting a few paintings from her latest body of work, based on her Soul Plan Mandalas, which she launched at the Zoom Gallery last summer.
Christina facilitates Mixed Media workshops in St Leonards and Battle, where she provides a space in which one can discover the artist within, play, create with paint & textured materials. You don’t need to be an artist to join in, just a willingness to explore through art.
The students vary from people who have never felt they were creative; ones who desire to re kindle their relationship to their creativity since school; to artists who feel blocked or stuck in their own practice. Everyone leaves with a sense of achievement and an incredible piece of artwork, many of which will be shown at this exhibition.
For more information about this or the workshops, please contact Christina on 07772 833484, Facebook or www.soulplanmandalas.co.uk
