Bexhill Sailing club participated in a Art and craft event outside the De La Warr Pavilion commissioned by International Artist Simon Patterson called Seascape on Saturday 18th May 2017.
The Seascape event itself was watched by a substantial live audience at the DLWP and I was informed that there was an official photographer and video taken of the event so should be some great photos and news.
For those of you who have not visited the exhibition there are 4 great photos that show us in the rehearsals (4 weeks ago) with coloured smoke that form a major part of the overall commission. There is also a great banner outside the DLWP with one of the photos and an in association with Bexhill Sailing Club on it – we couldn’t have asked for better profile which is all free of charge. We had a great article in the observer this week. We who participated thoroughly enjoyed our new experience and we have had great feedback from all who saw the event both Members and none members.
Simon Patterson the Artist has promised us a photograph signed which is alone potentially an investment for the Sailing Club and also something that we can use as marketing tool and hang as a picture in the club. I believe that we have now forged a strong relationship with DLWP and this could potentially lead to more interesting and different events moving forward.
