About the event

Christopher King is an artist, designer and craftsman based in the High Weald of East Sussex. His work combines traditional folk art and modernist design to explore our changing relationship with our surroundings and the natural world

Driven by observations of birds in the wild and the growing knowledge of the human impact on bird numbers in our own lifetime, his sculptures reimagine the traditional craft of ‘decoy’ carving and tap into the ancient, human need to shape simple materials into objects that reflect the everyday experience of nature. Aiming not to create an accurate replica but something that acts more like a glimpse, or an idea of a bird - a simple form holding a moment of stillness and connection

Christopher King carves all his pieces using simple hand tools from sustainable, found or recycled wood from the areas surrounding his home in the High Weald

This fascinating evening will appeal if you:

  • Are looking for stunning artwork for your home and  would like to meet the maker
  • Are interested in the creative processes of carving and its position as both a craft and fine art form
  • Are an aspiring artist who wants to find out what it takes to get noticed
  • Enjoy meeting like-minded art lovers in a friendly, relaxed setting
  • Believe in supporting a small business with big ambitions

We are Hove’s newest and most exciting contemporary art gallery and would love to welcome you for this special event.

Tickets are limited to 10 places 

We accept payment online by debit or credit card. You will receive an email receipt as proof of purchase and your name will be added to our guest list for the evening

“We so enjoyed meeting Chloe McCarrick, learning about the techniques applied and her inspiration behind each piece, and are now a proud owner of one of her beautiful artworks. With a glass of bubbles, a delightful environment and good company, it was a very enjoyable evening”

– The Ghislanzoni family, July 2022

“I recently attended the event when Chloe McCarrick was exhibiting in Hove. It was a well organised and fascinating evening, listening to how Chloe painstakingly creates each piece and the inspiring story behind each one”- Gill Searle, July 2022
