Rowan Hannay Exhibition at The Buttercup

Detail from Rowan Hannay artwork on show at The Buttercup Cafe in Lewes

We have a new exhibition in the cafe. Rowan Hannay is a Lewes artist who creates evocative mixed media paintings and sketches depicting familiar Brighton streets and Sussex seaside scenes. They are stunning.

Rowan describes his work: “Whatever the location I am especially interested in texture, colour and layers. Fascinated visually by decaying structures in the landscape and by using a wide range of drawing, painting, spraying and abrasive techniques I create mixed media abstract paintings. Working either on location or at my studio.”

We hope you like the pictures as much as we do. Come and have an ice cold glass of our sparkling elderflower cordial and check out Rowan’s work for yourself. His exhibition will be on display in our cool, shady downstairs space and upstairs in the cafe kitchen until the end of August. You can find out more about Rowan at
