An exhibition of large paintings, drawings, and prints, will be available to view at Roland Jarvis’s open studio event from August 4 to 6 as part of Hastings Old Town Carnival Week.

The artist’s studio is at 39A Tackleway, Hastings Old Town.

Roland Jarvis, a painter, sculptor, filmmaker and clockmaker has been living and working in Hastings for more than 30 years.

He works in a converted chapel with a 60ft-long studio and various other spaces crammed full with his creations.

These creations include everything from sculptures made out of recycled materials, drawings, prints, eight-foot canvas paintings, and in the last decade, numerous digital animation films.

As a tribute to him a documentary film, A Portrait of Roland Jarvis, exploring his life and work, was recently produced by Mark French.

The three-day open studio event provides a rare window into the world of the French-born artist and the opportunity to meet him.
