Current Exhibition.


Zoom Arts is holding it's September exhibition at the Stade Hall , Rock-A-Nore Road from Thursday 21st September until Sunday 1st October. There is a private view open to the public on Wednesday 20th from 7 to 9 pm, with special guests, The Duelling Badgers.
 The exhibition will be open daily from 10 am to
4pm. The theme this year is 'Portraits' but as usual Zoom artists and photographers have come up with some interesting interpretations of the theme. A portrait of a brick? Come along and check it out. Zoom Arts currently has around thirty members, all living locally, and is proving increasingly popular as an affordable way to exhibit.

This September, Zoom Arts are launching a brand new group exhibition celebrating the Hastings
based charity HFS (Hastings and Rother Furniture Services) to produce an intriguing and
informative exhibition to be shown at the Zoom gallery, Warrior Square; Curios, Collectables,
Creativity and Commerce.

The exhibition contains images which embrace and inform the viewer of the opportunities that HFS
have to offer. From selling on antique, unique and unusual furniture and fascinating trinkets, to
offering creativity classes, and further more, up-cycling otherwise redundant items of furniture, the
very ethos of HFS is that very little needs to be thrown away, and there is always an opportunity for
re-establishing an item's purpose. Furthermore, HFS offer generous discounts to people on low
incomes, and so remain accessible to all.

Zoom Arts have collaborated with HFS to produce this project during the course of the summer to
deliver a selection of images offering a narrative of the charity, and a sneak-peek behind the scenes
at the people who tirelessly offer their time and energy for HFS. There will be a wide range of
images which as Rob Maxted, Chair of Zoom explains '..show exactly what HFS is all about, with
it's interaction with the local community at all levels. We wanted to celebrate all that is great about
this charity based in Hastings and
Bexhill, and really showcase what is on offer to everyone'.

There will be a Private View of the work on Tuesday 12
th September from 7pm-9pm and then the
exhibition will be open from Wednesday 13
th September 10.30-16.00, together with a fantastic
opportunity to witness one of the real assets to HFS – the Workshop On Wheels – which as the
name suggests is a mobile workshop that is taken out into the community to teach people creative
skills and help assist in any up-cycle projects they might be interested in tackling! The WoW van
will be on site at the Zoom gallery on 21st September 10am-12.30 which will be a genuine
opportunity for local people to come along and see what hands-on creativity HFS has to offer. Do
come along and see what is on offer!

We hope to see you at Curios, Collectables Creativity & Commerce!
