People and their lives are at the heart of Jeremy Bear’s work. His creative process starts when his attention is caught by the creative spirit of others. It may be people he knows well, purposefully working in their chosen media, as with the present series of crafts people, or a chance encounter during his travels that provide the material for each vibrant painting and detailed coloured drawing. It is the individuals themselves, their activity and even sometimes the surroundings in which he finds them that is central to revealing his vision of their ‘creative spirit’.
In this exhibition there are more than 20 paintings showing city life in Kolkata and rural Indian locations; a new group of works from a visit to Japan; and around ten paintings and drawings in Jeremy’s latest series showing well-known crafts people at work.

Eastbourne is entered from the north via the A27 or the A22. If approaching from the A22, at the large roundabout just north of Polegate, follow the signs to Willingdon (3rd exit) through the traffic lights at Polegate, until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.
If approaching Eastbourne from the A27, at the junction with the A2270 traffic lights, turn right (signposted Polegate and Willingdon) and follow the A2270 until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.
At the roundabout take the second exit directed to the town centre (west). Follow straight on the A2270 until you come to a roundabout with the railway station on your left and the Prezzo restaurant on your right. Then turn right into Grove Road, keeping the library on your right and go past the police station, following signs for Devonshire Park, which is adjacent the College. The College will appear on your left in Grange Road. Old Wish Road is at the far end of the pitch which is in front of the school.
From other directions, head for the seafront and turn inland opposite the Martello Tower (the Wish Tower) joining Carlisle Road. Turn right into Grange Road and immediately right into Old Wish Road.
