Eastbourne Arts Circle Donates £1,000 prize in the Towner Sculpture Competition

Eastbourne Arts Circle have commissioned a new art work from Sussex artist Helen Turner to be displayed from 11th July in the Towner’s gallery window this summer. Not only have we funded this commission but our own committee member Helena Birch was one of the judges along with Lady Gage, a lecturer at the School of Arts and Communication at Brighton University, and chatelaine of Firle Place,  and Towner director Joe Hill.  Artist Helen Turner, who’s based in Newhaven, created Head, an artwork that makes use of UV light so that passers-by can experience the sculpture 24 hours a day.
