Art Show: John McSweeney – Capturing the Spectacle: Paintings of Modern Life ** 11-26 Jul 2015 ** Hop Gallery, Lewes

HOT OF THE PRESS – New Exhibition opens this Friday evening 6pm onwards (10th of July).

Please join the Hop Gallery on Friday evening for the opening of their very exciting unscheduled exhibition by John McSweeney.

Having been waiting on tenterhooks to see if we could secure this exciting exhibition by this exceptionally talented London based artist we are delighted to announce we have managed with very short notice to pull it off.

This exhibition is curated by local Artist/ Facilitator Alex Grey.

Fresh from his success in the 2014 John Moores Painting Prize, John McSweeney presents a witty and eclectic collection that places the human figure centre-stage in order to depict aspects of modern life. Combining photography, digital editing techniques and a mature painting style, this new work explores the complex interplay between technology and privacy, safety and intrusion, consumerism and personal relationships.

Exhibition: Saturday 11 July – Sunday 26 July 2015

Open: Tues-Sat 10am-5pm, Sun 11am-4pm, closed Monday or by appointment

Hop Gallery, Lewes
