In October and November, the Grange Art Gallery opens its doors to  wide ranging and thought provoking  exhibitions.   Prepare to have your ideas and perceptions challenged…..

6 – 18 October.  Rob Upward.  “High and Low.”

This is Rob Upward’s fifth one-person exhibition at the Grange Art Gallery, and he has called it “High and Low”, because his thirty paintings look at landscape from mountains to sea. “I have become fascinated by the predominant colours in different landscapes; for example, the red-brown vastness of the Nullarbor Plain in Australia, the black lava fields of Hawaii.”

20 October – l November. Amanda Davidson. “Imagination. Dead Imagine” (Samuel Beckett)

Amanda Davidson is a published children’s book illustrator, author, who works mainly in pen and ink, watercolour, oils and acrylic. In this exhibition, shared with Vince Donlin, they explore the meaning of self, perception, bereavement, imagination, love and life in paint.

23-15 November.  Society of Sussex Painters

“The work of members has always been fresh, lively, contemporary” says Barry Hinchliff, the society’s president.  And this year’s exhibition will show the work of fifteen to twenty Sussex  artists, each contributing up to four pieces of work. The society was formed i 1924.  Since then, they have had annual and bi-annual shows, very often at The Grange.

17 – 29 November. Jim MacAirt. “Zen TV”

“We are mesmerized with phones, i-pads and widescreen tvs. I see that we are trapped in devices,” says Jim MacAirt.  In this exhibition, he offers an antithesis to today’s intense preoccupation with watching.  showing abstractions, images that require no dialogue or theory.
