Arts Council Collection


From Downs To Sea: A Slice of Life


Brighton Museum and Art Gallery

5 April to 15 June 2014


‘We were given the opportunity to work with Brighton Museum to choose art work from the Arts Council Collection for an exhibition. We found many works that spoke to us about what we experience in our daily lives, living on the outskirts of a big city. This exhibition helps to tell the story of our home – between the Downs and the sea.’
Residents from the Portslade and West Hove neighbourhoods

Seascapes by L S Lowry and Jeffrey Camp; rural scenes by Peter Doig and Edward Burra; and urban images by Carel Weight and David Redfern were all included in this exhibition that encourages the visitor to reflect on their own personal responses to the art that they see.
