Current opening times and directions
Home Live Art are thrilled to announce a collaboration with iconic artist, model, and muse, Sue Tilley, on a new exhibition entitled ‘Together We Draw’ at Hastings Museum and Art Gallery.
‘Together We Draw’ is a selection of portraits created by the hundreds of people who took part in ‘Life Drawing with Sue Tilley’.
Part ‘life drawing class’ and part celebrity interview, the live-streamed show saw Sue invite an infamous friend each week to pose for an online audience of Hastings locals alongside people from across the world, who would sketch away and submit questions live while Sue and her model had a candid chit chat.
These funny, open and uncensored conversations would often touch on deep issues – relationships, addiction, love, death, pop stardom and, of course, isolation.
The portraits on display in ‘Together We Draw’ are not just influenced by the model’s appearance, but by the conversations and atmosphere of the show, making each piece a unique documentation of a moment in time.
This vibrant and colourful display of portraits encapsulates a collective moment in time when being together and sharing space – even digitally – became desperately needed.
Most importantly, ‘Together We Draw’ demonstrates that anyone can be an artist and the process of creating is something everyone should enjoy, something Sue passionately believes in.
‘Life Drawing with Sue Tilley’ was broadcast weekly from March 2020 to March 2021 on Isolation Station Hastings, an online community live-streaming channel which was a platform for local events during the pandemic.
The show quickly became one of the most popular weekly events with thousands of portraits created. It also provided a moment for people to be together, during a period when isolation was causing significant challenges to many.
‘Together We Draw’ is produced by Home Live Art in collaboration with Hastings Museum and Art Gallery and Isolation Station
‘Life Drawing with Sue Tilley’ was co-produced and funded by Isolation Station Hastings
