Unpopular Culture - Grayson Perry selects from the Arts Council Collection

This weekend I spent a very enjoyable day at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea. I was exhibiting at the Midcentury Show, but inbetween working I was lucky enough to be able to walk across the foyer and see some really wonderful art.
The Unpopular Culture exhibition is a selection by the British artist, Grayson Perry, of paintings, photographs and sculpture all from the Arts Council Collection. The work on show reflects real British life and society from the 1940s on, and reminds us of a slower time. Just my sort of thing. There are paintings by well know artists such as Lowry, Paul Nash and Carel Weight as well as lesser know works by Elinor Bellingham-Smith and others. There is also new work by Grayson Perry including the most spectacular pot.

The exhibition is a real treat and and is free.

Open now until the 6th July 2008.
