Thanks for calling in.
We have to call into an Art Gallery whilst we're in Eastbourne, it's what we do. Towner Gallery is one of four galleries that have access to the Arts Council National Collection. It's a modern building with a cafe (selling cheese scones) and shop. Let's have a look at the current exhibitions.
Andy Holden and Peter Holden: Natural Selection - an ornithological journey from nest building to the damage of egg collecting. Amongst the exhibits was this enormous bower bird nest made of wicker, fortunately the bird that made it was nowhere to be seen!
Towner has one of the largest collections of Eric Ravilious' artworks and archive material. He was born, grew up and taught in Eastbourne. Many of his paintings are currently on tour at Compton Verney..
Inhabit - some Patrick Caulfield works new to Towner were on display amongst this exhibition.
Haroon Mirza curates works from the Arts Council Collection. We stared at the Moon from the centre of the Sun.
Towner - the building.
Of course the cafe does sell more than just cheese scones.
