The Pine Gallery Basement Bash
Saturday 4th September. 11am onwards ...
'A Celebration of the Abundance of Art'
The aim of this event was to introduce Jon and Caroline's plans to transform the basement into the Pine Gallery: A contemporary exhibition, workshop and training space for artists in the centre of Hastings. Their plans featured a gallery, set up and run on a voluntary basis by artists from Claremont Studios. At the same time, Jon and Caroline were working on a proposal for a refurbishment of the basement together with a programme of events including exhibitions, discussion, training and workshops.
For this show, the space was shown in a state of flux as its transformation got underway. For the duration of 'Basement Bash' the building work, excavations and demolition were momentarily paused and re-arranged.
