Art on show in Worthing Library

 

Art will be taking centre stage in Worthing Library later this month.

The library – in Richmond Road, Worthing – will be exhibiting artwork as part its first year as a venue for the Worthing Art Trail, which takes place from Saturday June 13th until Saturday June 27th.

Showcasing a variety of talented artists, you can expect to see a selection of artistic mediums and genres and even participate in one of the ‘Piece of String Theatre Improvised Drama Workshops’ taking place on each of the three Saturdays.

Each week a different exhibit will be held in the library.

From Saturday June 13th – for one week, you will be able to view ‘Kathakali Kites’ – Art Kites by Sarah Sepe and Barry Williams, inspired by Worthing Museum’s ‘East meets West’ Exhibition featuring Indian costumes and masks. Also, Marie Vickers will be exhibiting her work in the glass showcase.

From Saturday June 20th – come and view Marijke Seller’s Tapestry Weaving. Marijke works with different textures to give an extra dimension to the tapestry.

Throughout the fortnight long Worthing Art Trail, Worthing Library will also be displaying sculptures by Jane Keeley as well as Jude Evans’ colourful landscapes and marine scenes in oils, acrylics and watercolours.

The artwork will be on show six days a week, from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm on Monday to Friday, and between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm on Saturday. Entry is free.

The improvised drama workshops will take place between 10.30 am and 12.30 pm on each of the Saturdays for the duration of the Art Trail. You can choose one to attend or come along to all three.

Liz Armour, from A Piece of String Theatre, will be leading the workshops which are free to attend.
