Carlotta Luke and Karen Potter
1 March to 11 April 2017
Carlotta Luke – Southover Grange
Over the last nine months, Carlotta Luke has been photographing the restoration of Southover Grange, a historic Tudor manor in the centre of Lewes. East Sussex County Council is restoring the Grange so that it can become the county’s flag-ship register office for weddings, ceremonies and other life events in summer 2017. Carlotta has covered a wide range of subjects during her photographic career, including architecture, reportage, people and more. For the past six years she has been documenting the renovation of old and listed buildings in Sussex, creating visual narratives that tell the stories of the sites through the process of their transformations. Carlotta’s work will be on display in the hotel’s bar.
Karen Potter – Landscape prints
Karen is a local printmaker whose work brings out the vivid colours of the landscape. She became hooked on printmaking about 25 years ago. Inspired by the German artist and print-maker Kathe Kollwitz, Karen enrolled on a print-making course at the University of Brighton. Karen loves the freedom that printing brings to her work. The slow building of colour to bring an image to life is a time-consuming process as each print is produced by hand and is slightly different. The litho plate or lino block is wiped clean after each layer of colour, which makes the print unique and final. Karen’s work will be on show in the hotel’s reception and atrium.
The exhibition will be open every day from 9 am to 9pm. The exhibition is free with full disabled access. The art is for sale and can be purchased via reception and collected at the end of the exhibition.
