Join artists and art lovers for a ‘Be your Selfie’ party at Chalk Gallery in Lewes on Saturday 17thAugust, from 5.00pm – 8.00pm. Chalk’s 21 artists are showcasing their own interpretation of the theme in a light-hearted exhibition of self portraits that embraces the selfie phenomenon.
Visitors can enjoy a glass of Prosecco and strawberries dipped in chocolate as they browse the work on show. Artworks range from humorous to topical and inventive to thought provoking, created to stimulate the imagination and debate. See if you can spot the artists from their self portraits and take your own selfie within a photo frame to post on social media.
The fun evening event marks the beginning of Lewes’ Artwave Festival which celebrates the wealth of artistic talent in the heart of Sussex. It forms part of Chalk’s Summer Exhibition which runs from 12thAugust to 22ndSeptember.
