COURAGE-ous Exhibition at Worthing Church

Film, video art and exciting installation alongside an alternative contemporary craft fair and a night of live music put a Worthing church centre stage during July's Artists + Makers Festival.

COURAGE has been taking place in the dramatic surroundings of St Matthew's, Tarring Road, Worthing for three years. And this year's exhibition includes videos by artist Nathan Bean, photography by Phil Clarke-Hill, installation by Ingrid Plum and work from a further six artists. But this year, the exhibition of installation, sculpture, photography and digital artwork is joined by three new events. The whole event is open from 7-9pm on Friday 13th July and 10am-5pm on Saturday 14th July, and the other events will take place around the main exhibition in the church.

This year's Artists + Makers Festival guide has a striking front cover image - and a lot of people are asking 'where is that building'?

Well, it's the Art Deco treminal building at Shoreham Airport, captured in a screenprint by Fred Pipes. The Brighton-based artist and illustrator completed the work at Brighton Independent Printmakers (commonly known as BIP).

Fred will be exhibiting the print as part of the Festival's popular open houses, studios & gardens event which take place on 7th, 8th, 14th and 15th July from 2-6pm. 'Shoreham Airport', other prints and some watercolours by Fred Pipes will be on show at Thompson Towers, 35 Lanfranc Road, Worthing BN14 7ES.

Worthing Wishes

RAG artist Ingrid Plum joined the group's activites for Worthing Pier Day - celebrating the local landmark's recognition as Pier of the Year 2006.

Members of the public were asked to write whatever they wished for, in particular what they wished for Worthing. They wrote their wishes on paper tags which were then tied around the white railing of the pier. When 100 wishes had been made and tied to the railings, it resembled a Buddhist temple where prayers are written on strips of paper and tied near a shrine.
