This month The Birley Centre hosts a thought provoking exhibition of new paintings by respected local artist, Elda Abramson. This body of work was created in response to her visit to the refugee camp in Calais in September 2015. She spent 10 days helping out and meeting some of the people living there. This overwhelming experience inspired a series of very beautiful and emotive paintings. The exhibition is open weekends from 13 - 28 February, 11am - 5pm at The Birley Centre, Carlisle Road, Eastbourne.
