Café Projects

Café Projects is a programme of selling exhibitions of works by artists based in the Sussex region, displayed in on our café wall space. These projects are a great opportunity to see, and purchase, some of the fantastic work being made by local artists.

Sussex artists can apply for a Café Project by emailing a CV and up to 8 small jpegs (not more than 2MB in total) to alison.bettles@townereastbourne.org.uk for consideration.

Annalaura Palma
Virginia’s Path, 2015- 2016

Virginia’s Path’s is inspired by the diaries of the writer Virginia Woolf while she was living in Monk’s House, Rodmell; her house during the Second World War. Through a combination of text (excerpts from Woolf’s diaries) and photographs the series focuses on Woolf’s more personal recounts of her daily life during the war, in relationship to the surrounding landscape. During this period Woolf took long walks each afternoon across the fields and brooks, she often describes this landscape as a source of calm and beauty even during the escalation of the conflict when Monk’s House became a shelter and prison at the same time.

Annalaura Palma is an Italian artist based in Brighton who works primarily with photography. Her work explores notions of place in relationship to historical figures, literature and mythology.
