Artists living or working in or around Hastings were recently offered the chance to display their works on the backs of bus shelters around the town.
The currently empty 100cm x 62cm frames have been made available to the Love Hastings ‘Artshelter‘ project and provide a great opportunity to brighten up the area.
Any sort of work that can be reproduced on a poster was accepted – from watercolours, oil paintings, or sketches, to spray art, photos or digital designs.
Work will be rotated every few months, and artists who are chosen will receive £50 for each design they have featured.
‘This is another great example of how the money raised from local businesses can get used to make Hastings a brighter and more attractive place at the same time as supporting and promoting local artists.’Catherine Parr, White Rock Hotel – Chair of Hastings Business Improvement District

The project is one of several funded by local businesses who contribute annually to back the work carried out on their behalf by Love Hastings.
