A Shifting Focus – 10th August – 22nd August

Julian Hayward trained as a designer, and throughout his life he enjoyed drawing. He was a lecturer at Brighton Polytechnic (now Brighton University) for 25 years, teaching Interior Design in the Department of Architecture.

As he approached retirement he took a certificate course in print-making, a medium with which he felt a great affinity. In retirement he expanded his practice to include painting. His greatest enthusiasm in life was reserved for the environment, especially the Arctic and Antarctic environment, along with astronomy and music, interests reflected in his work. In May 2016 he booked the Gallery at the Grange for this exhibition, but died after a short illness in June 2016. The exhibition is intended by his family as a tribute to him.
