REGENERATE: Online Exhibition

Throughout April via the BMN website:  see Regenerate Show in top menu bar

REGENERATE; to bring new and more vigorous life to 


In April, instead of a physical event, we are giving you time to explore all the artworks that our members have created for the first Blue Monkey Members online art exhibition REGENERATE.  As part of the Open Call, members were asked to submit works that were primarily made with repurposed paper or card; where the materials originally had a different purpose, such as a box from packaging.  We specifically asked artists not to just use their spare art materials and not to use plastic.


REGENERATE delivers an exciting body of work by emerging and established artists that truly reflects the diverse range and talent of our thriving artist network.  The exhibition includes jewellery, sculpture, painting, illustration, drawing, ceramics, animation, collage and more, revealing the distinctive art practices of our members.  


The online exhibition continues until the end of April and then each artist has had at least one work selected for a physical exhibition running at VOLT gallery in Eastbourne from 13th -21st July 2024 (more details will be available via our events page).

If you are planning on attending one of our events and have any access needs, please let us know in advance. 

Blue Monkey Network is run by artists for artists, in partnership with Towner Eastbourne, and is entirely funded by membership subscriptions and donations. Many thanks to all our supporters.

This month’s event is the opportunity to sign up for a workshop which will be for  8 people. (We can consider an additional session another time if there is demand).  The workshop is being subsidised by the network and is open to BMN members only.  This workshop will help you to make good images of your artwork for digital cataloguing, open calls, media presentation etc, using natural and artificial lighting techniques and an easy understanding of image resolution. 


No photographic experience is necessary.  We will be using a mixture of personal mobile phones and Elizabeth’s digital cameras to make the images. 

If you would like to take part, then there are a few places remaining so please email Nikki on the Events Team as soon as possible.

Horsey Sewer

Waterweek artists Charlotte Still and Clare Whistler invite Blue Monkey to join them on a walk along the Horsey Sewer with their new project ‘Watercycle’ a mobile pop-up water hub with guest interventions along the way.

For several years, artists Clare Whistler and Charlotte Still have been following an organic process of where being with and thinking about water will take them. A water wandering; inquisitive, interactive, immersive, reflective, poetic, experiential, unexpected, spontaneous and flowing. On the way, they have constantly looked for ways to share their experience and convey their rapidly growing concerns and reverence for water.
