The Gallery @ Montague opens on 12th April for seven weeks (10 am – 4 pm Thursday-Sunday). Over 25 local artists are participating, many of them adurArtcollective members. Particularly current is the work of two participating artists, who are both keen to highlight the devastating effects that plastics have on the environment.
Candy Medusa has a Master’s degree in Marine Science as well as being a professional artist. She was resident artist aboard the Sea Dragon on the 2016 eXXpedition, an all-female crewed scientific research mission exploring our impact on the world’s oceans. Candy exhibits nationally and internationally: most recently on the Adur Art Trail in Shoreham by sea, in London, San Francisco and Dubai. Her eco-art is made from upcycled beach litter, which represents the very marine life it so endangers. She is a member of adurArtcollective and shows at Shoreham Art Gallery. Her work can also be seen here on the adurArtcollective website and ;

Julia Ann Field
The dominant themes of Julia Ann Field’s sacred-scapes address the imbalance which she perceives in Western 21st century lifestyles. We no longer fully engage with the Feminine, the Sacred and our Earth: the connection between our natural inner and outer worlds has been lost in a virtual plastic universe of instant gratification and angst over social media popularity.
On joining the Adur Art Collective, Julia was so inspired by Candy’s work that she subsequently produced ‘Tipping Point’, an indictment of the current plastics crises. Her work can be seen here, on the adurArtcollective website, and at:
