Hove Arts: Art @ the boundary

Nicholas Dunn-Coleman

Evolved from last year’s Art @ All Saints, and the Sussex County Cricket Ground backdrop of the new venue suits it just fine. Persevere to find the suite round the back of the ground, and you’ll find quite a variety. Royston Hawley’s moody, threatening sea and sky oil paintings are a great foil for Polly Ballantine’s black and gold formal Oriental animal studies, and Nicholas Dunn-Coleman is showing a fascinating look at the art of the bookbinder. You can see exactly what goes on beneath the covers when a book is created by hand, and watch the process as happens. Some elegant hand-made books too, and a Victorian Bible rebound in leather for a new lease of life.
