David Bomberg Exhibition
Jeremy viewed it on opening night and it is well worth a visit. I have been able to arrange a brief talk by Tom Laver the assistant curator (only 10mins or so). May I suggest we arrange to get to the gallery by 11.00 and meet up in the café for a cuppa before we start. Tom will speak to us at 11.30 (I hope) which should take account of late arrivals. After your visit you may wish to return to Seaford and use the facilities at the Downs as usual or you could stay on in Eastbourne for some sketching/painting. If you would like a lift please email me and I’ll do what I can to accommodate you. NB: This exhibition is FREE an extra plus! but please consider a donation.
