Slater’s Sussex Friday 13th October

talk posterJames Trollope will be discussing his fascination with this popular artist of the pre-war years, who lived at Seaford. He writes:

“I bought an Eric Slater colour woodcut of Seaford Head seven years ago because it’s a lovely image of my home town but could find little about the artist’s life so started my own research. One thing led to another!”

First an exhibition at Towner in Eastbourne, then a book (“Slater’s Sussex”) followed by a Brighton and Hove bus being named after him, a Slater Trail (a 2 hour walk taking in views which inspired him) and his work being appraised on the Antiques Roadshow (among other things).

The Talk, held at the Whiteway Centre, Rottingdean, 7-9pm, will be followed by refreshments and a guided tour of the exhibition
