Definitely. I know a few people who just go so that they can have a nose. But it's also worth going just to see how many talented people live in the area and some of their work is surprisingly affordable.

Artwave is now dominated by Brighton (so called) artists, and is a poor reflection on Lewes talent.
The long and short of it all is that Artwave is just a money spinner for LDC

@Jackson B'ollock - can you elaborate on how Artwave is a money-spinner for LDC?

I did Artwave once a few years ago. I made the mistake of having opening night drinks, this was before I had discovered what a pee head town Lewes is, and I couldn't believe the trash that came through the door with no interest other than free drinks and nosing round my home. At the other end of the spectrum were the artists who lowered themselves to visit and cast their all knowing eye over my work. I cant decide who I hated having in my home more. Artwave is indeed a voyeurs wet dream, it is also the perfect opportunity for the very, very self important and pompous Lewes artists to pretend they have a small degree of relevance. Lewes has only 4 'respected' artists that I know of, 2 being photographers. The rest are a cliched pastiche of mediocrity.

Do you include yourself in that four, or is your work just a pastiche of mediocrity?

I donít know about art but I do know what I like - and if it hangs nicely on the wall and suits my existing decor so much the better!

It's hard to decide who is the funniest on here: 'Chicken Licken' Cool Hand Luke or 'Street Fighting Man' Sensible. more
