The Crypt Gallery at St Mary in the Castle is an exhibition space unique to the building. With its rich history as a burial for members of the Churches congregation, the crypt is brimming with atmosphere and intrigue. The alcoves make it a perfect space for group shows, or for dividing different aspects of your work, and lends itself to the installation of multi-media artworks.
The space has been used to exhibit the art of international and local artists and has been a key location for local arts festivals, including Coastal Currents and the PhotoHastings season.
St Mary in the Castle has played host to numerous high profile exhibitions, most notably a Lee Miller and Roland Penrose Surrealist Exhibition that ran alongside a performance in our auditorium of ‘The Angel and the Fiend’, a dramatic reading of the life of Lee Miller.
Running concurrently with major exhibitions at the De La Warr Pavilion, St Mary in the Castle has begun hosting exhibitions in partnership with Project Artworks.
As well as being located in the centre of Hastings, the space receives through traffic from the St Marys restaurant and attendees to the many St Mary in the Castle events.
Here at St Mary in the Castle we endeavour to have an excellent visual arts program that compliments the beauty of the building and places us at the centre of the emerging arts scene here in Hastings.
Now we are seven, an established group of artists, present a diverse mix of contemporary art works exploring the concept of the unspoken. In this exhibition 6 of the group are showing works inspired by various interpretations of the theme, including loss, waste, our impact on the natural world, poetry and friendship.
Join the artists in the gallery space as they each share their ideas behind the work and their creative processes in an informal walk around the gallery.
The artists talking at the event will be Nikki Davidson-Bowman,
Louise Michele Evans, Stephanie Grainger, Jules Mitchell, Katy Oxborrow and Mandy Wax.
