Project Art Works now have the keys of 12 Claremont in Hastings, a new gallery and project space to extend our activities into a more public facing space. This building is a community asset transfer between East Sussex County Council and Heart of Hastings.
Do you have a memory or photo of Claremont?
To inform and contextualise the gallery space and the history of this building in the town centre, we want to learn more about the people and places that have come before us.
Send photos, memories, films or artwork to [email protected]
Contributions may feature on website as part of our community story telling project (still to be announced).
Heart of Hastings plan to renovate the building into an explicitly inclusive, creative and affordable neighbourhood hub for living, working and community action. In partnership with Heart of Hastings, Project Art Works will open the ground floor of this building as a gallery and project space.
How to find 12 Claremont:
While the building is awaiting renovation, Project Art Works have been installing a series of exhibitions using the space in the window. The window exhibitions have presented works from the extensive archive and have showcased current projects and programming.
Currently presented in the window space, are two large drawings from a selection of over 20 works that were created during Illuminating the Wilderness, an installation, exhibition and residency at Tate Liverpool in 2019
During this unprecedented time and in preparation for the launch of a physical space, Project Art Works are developing an online exhibition space for the gallery – details of which will be released soon.
