Tales from the Seaside

Posted by Sara on August 12, 2009

Talesfromtheseaside

Nice to see neglected buildings put to good use – as in the case of the old music library in Church St which is now home to  the Prescription Art Gallery and its rather fabulous exhibition of Street Art. Spread out over three storeys in this splendidly dilapidated listed building, the exhibition features artwork by over 25 artists from around the globe. From monumental monopoly boards to basement Madonna’s and scary wooden robots this is an amazing collection of artwork.

robotI loved this and cannot recommend it enough – there is something about the combination of crumbly mansions and cutting edge creativity that always manages to warm the cockles of my heart and as we speak I am scrimping and saving my pennies so I can buy one of their gorgeous canvases – failing that I guess I’ll settle for one of the brilliant books or bargain prints on offer.

And if that isn’t enough spray can splendiferousness for you, an exibition of local grafitti legends Heavy Artillery will be opening upstairs in the gallery from Wednesday 12th August, featuring special screenings of the film that followed the creation of their work in Kensington St. For more info go visit Prescription Art.

Ditchling Road / Oxford Place

Some great stuff being done round the old Buxtons building at the moment. It’s too good for my ailing camera and the failing summer light to do justice to so go check it out for yourselves  – and all done by  the same bloke no less – imagine having a whole street to yourself to paint. Amazing.

Enough Said

I’m a big fan of Banksy, especially his rats – I’m not sure this is actually one of his but it made me smile nonetheless; it’s a little blurred but the writing on the bag reads YOUR CASH.
