Exhibition: Andrew McEwan and Tiffany Buckley Starts 11th October
Ends 22nd October
Tuesday 11th October – Saturday 22nd October

Andrew McEwan was born 1964 and studied at the Royal College of Art in animation and fine arts. He has created animation shorts for MTV and has won a BAFTA for the short animated film ‘Toxic’. Blot painting is a technique that he has developed, whereby the paint is applied and then blotted on to the other half of the medium. It is then unfolded to reveal a mirrored pattern, he them uses his imagination to read the paint and interpret the imagery, to create a new picture. This teaches people to read the paint by providing a vehicle for it and gives a use for the visual imagination. Andrew lives and works in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Tiffany Buckley will be exhibiting some detailed line and watercolour paintings of beautiful Sussex scenery and flowers in October. She last exhibited at the Cranleigh Arts Centre in 1995 showing her personalised adult, children and pet's names in frames, before moving to Worthing, West Sussex. Since then, she has produced a dementia friendly colouring book which has sold well, and has appealed to all ages who enjoy painting and colouring in her work! Her most popular print on the story of Creation will also be available to purchase along with some of her other lovely prints.
