Repeat After Me

A show celebrating Armistice weekend last November at the ESPS.

After Dark Show

Dec-Jan 2019

DC1 Gallery , 67-69 Seaside Road, Eastbourne BN21 


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"
