Artist Support Pledge
I am pleased to be taking part in the Artist Support Pledge in support of artists and makers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project uses Instagram for artists to post images using #artistsupportpledge, giving details of their works and price (no more than £200 or equivalent). When the artist has sold £1000 worth of work they fulfil their pledge and spend £200 on another artist/s work. I will be posting a range of prints for sale on archive paper throughout the next couple of months. See www.Instagram.com/susanhamer4 ..more
Repeat After Me
Electro Studios Project Space, St Leonards-on-Sea
A show celebrating Armistice weekend last November at the ESPS. The show featured myself and 6 other artists from diverse disciplines whose work is a response to aftershocks of war, a century on from the so-called war to end all wars-WW1. The show contained work form my Memento Series; featuring pill-boxes, barrage balloons and sound mirrors. ..more
After Dark Show
DC1 Gallery, 67-69 Seaside Road, Eastbourne
DC Members had to respond to the show title: After Dark. The exhibition theme was based on the following idea; " the show is to take place over the winter solstice, the darkest part of the year but also the time when we turn on the festive lights and brighten up the dark nights with cosy fires; a time to dream, or a time of nightmares; dark secrets, festive celebrations or a time of rest and relaxation".
