PORT Hotels on Eastbourne seafront will be staging art exhibitions.

Its first one is already on display.

Here’s their update: “Eastbourne has a fantastic art scene which is spearheaded by @townergallery, with its world-class exhibitions and rich roster of events.

At Port, we want to support and nurture the wonderful creativity that can be found in East Sussex and our surrounds.

Our restaurant and bar therefore provides the space for artists to showcase their work and narratives.

Our inaugural exhibition is with the incredible @__jonathan__murphy who studied Fine Art Painting at Slade School.

Having lived in London for 20 years, Jonathan has now escaped the city for life on the East Sussex coast.

Pop into Port to see a series of his work, which are also available to buy. Enjoy!”
