The Towner Gallery is putting together a collection of the works of Eastbourne artist Harold Mockford to celebrate his 80th birthday. The gallery owns fourteen of his paintings.
|The Long Man at Wilmington|
Mockford's primary inspiration has been the coastal landscape around Eastbourne, Berwick and Newhaven where he moved in the late 1990s. He uses particularly vibrant colours and often views his subject from unexpected angles so familiar landscape features are transformed, allowing viewers to appreciate them anew. He has spent a lifetime walking the Downs in this small area both alone and with his family.

Tues - Sun 10:00 - 18:00.
