1. Help bring the work of an internationally renowned artist to Hastings.
Paula Rego will create a series of new work for the exhibition which has never been seen on public display before. We want to make Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, the first public gallery to exhibit these works.
2. Support Hastings' bustling art scene and the town's regeneration.
We want to offer Hastings a world class exhibition, which not only adds to our vibrant art scene but will boost the town's economy and regeneration.
3. Discover the power of storytelling in art.
Paula Rego is famous for using figurative art to bring to life some of our favourite childhood stories. Her unique style and interpretation of these stories, give them a dark, soul-exposing twist!
4. Enable children and families to engage with art.
If we are successful in raising our £25,000 target, there will be a programme of workshops that will enable children and families to explore the exhibition and learn more about the techniques and stories that Rego uses to create her paintings.
5. Receive a beautiful Rego inspired reward.
By donating to the project, you will receive a unique, limited edition reward to say a big thank you for supporting our campaign. You can get your hands on a wonderful limited edition cockle-shell stamp inspired by Rego's Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary I, 1989 from her Nursery Rhyme series. Great for personalising letters, cards and envelopes, it's the perfect addition to any stationery set!
If you donate £200, you will receive two tickets to the exhibition's opening night in October, a signed exhibition poster and a limited-edition ceramic plate.
