There’s No Place Like Home

Charleston teams up with East Sussex College

Art and Design and Photography students from East Sussex College will present an exhibition of art, sculpture and photography in the grounds of Charleston from 14th-24th March. 

The students worked on live briefs and responded creatively and imaginatively to the theme of ‘home’. The vibrant show includes a sculpture trail of the students’ work in the gardens, as well as other 2D works and photography on display in the recently renovated Hay Barn.

Course leader, James DiBiase, is coordinating the exhibition and said that the project had been, “highly challenging, but also incredibly exciting and promises to be something rather special.”

Susan Kent, Learning Officer at Charleston said: “In the spirit of Bloomsbury and the artists who created a unique home at Charleston we are committed to encouraging the creativity of local young artists. I am very excited by the ideas and quality of the work being created by the East Sussex College art students and look forward to seeing it exhibited at Charleston. I would encourage everyone to come and visit.”

As a part of their learning experience the students are also undertaking work experience and will be supporting the delivery of hands on free workshops for local school children.

The exhibition will be open 11am till 5pm until Sunday 24 March.

Access  is free to those visiting the exhibitions. House, Garden and Exhibition entry to the Charleston Galleries are ticketed.
