ARTBOURNE is this year (1 – 4 November 2018). We are currently finalising our visual identity and more information will be updated on this website shortly.
What is ARTBOURNE?
ARTBOURNE is an arts initiative run in alternate years at Wellesley College, Eastbourne and supporting the Wellesley College Foundation. Year 1 is a multi-artist exhibition, Year 2 the month-long Artist Residency, followed by a residency and student exhibition (held September 2017)
Every second year ARTBOURNE exhibition transforms the Centennial Hall into a contemporary art gallery. The aim is to foster established and emerging artists (some connected with the school and others who are selected by a panel of curators) and to showcase for sale their selected artworks. The artists donate a percentage of artwork sales to the Foundation’s scholarship campaign Promising Futures for Boys
This endowment fund is for boys who would not otherwise be able to attend because of financial constraint.
2018 is the ARTBOURNE year and we are delighted to be including work by our 2017 Artist in Residence talented mixed media artist Richard Adams
