Visit to Towner Gallery, Eastbourne

There is a very interesting exhibition ‘Peggy Angus – Designer, Teacher, Painter’ on until 21 September.

Peggy knew all the interesting artists / designers / architects – first meeting Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious at the RCA. She provided a sort of artistic powerhouse at Furlongs on the Sussex Downs, which although had no mod cons they all had  creative, jolly and naughty times there. Many of Ravilious’s magical landscapes were made there.

There is a short film in the exhibition of Peggy who remained artistically active all her life – what she has to say about women and art / teaching / friends / life is quite fascinating.

James Russell has written a very good book about Peggy so I can now add her to my list of heros!  I read it on a very delayed train journey back from Eastbourne and hardly noticed the heat/huge amount of people and generally unpleasant conditions.

I live in London, I can see the top of the Shard from my window. I like making things and I mainly produce paintings which I exhibit and sell if the right person comes along!
