Brewers Towner Commission unveiled at Towner Eastbourne

June 2019

June 14th, 2019

Towner Eastbourne, an iconic building set in the culturally rich Devonshire quarter of the town, has become the canvas of a new art installation by Lothar Götz: Dance Diagonal, the Brewers Towner Commission.

Sponsored by Brewers, the commission is part of Towner’s anniversary programme celebrating 10 years in the current building. The work will be in place until May 2020. Artist Lothar Götz was selected from sixty artists and designers who applied to the open call, with a strikingly colourful geometric design and which is now one of the biggest murals in the UK.

Towner Art Gallery Director, Joe Hill comments: ‘We are delighted to have commissioned Lothar Götz to create a new work for the exterior of our building this year, marking our 10th anniversary in this space and utilising the exterior of our building for a unique large-scale artwork for the first time. Götz’s signature style of bright, engaging colours, geometric patterns and bold large-scale works will allow visitors and residents to engage with the gallery in a new way this summer.’

The mural wraps all three external sides of the gallery in fifteen vibrant shades and Götz draws on the interesting architectural features of the building.

Lothar Götz said: ‘To paint the entire rendered wall space of Towner offers an amazing canvas, and to realise a painting of that scale in such a prominent public position of Eastbourne really is a kind of dream project for me. Visible from several prominent viewpoints of the town with a wide range of different audiences, the painting will conceptually sit somewhere between street art and minimalism/abstraction and therefore hopefully offer a range of diverse viewings and readings.’

Over 900L of Albany Smooth Masonry paint was supplied by Brewers in hand mixed shades to ensure the vibrancy of the design was brought to life. Albany, created by Brewers in 1920, has long been used for prestigious buildings in the town, known for its superior trade-quality and strong pigmentation.

Mark Brewer, Chairman of Brewers Decorator Centres comments ‘we are delighted with the striking result of the Brewers Towner Commission; it’s fantastic to see Lothar’s design come to life. As a family business that started in Eastbourne in 1904 we feel passionately about the life of the town in all its dimensions – not least the cultural life. It has clearly raised the profile of the already vibrant Arts Scene in Eastbourne – attracting a lot of interest from both visitors to the town and the local community’

School Library Bus Steers Kids Towards Reading!

June 2019

Question: How many tins of paint are needed to paint a double-decker bus?

Well, Peterborough store now know the answer, after taking part in a fantastic community project to turn a double-decker into a school library!

With student numbers having almost doubled in size in recent years, Baston CE Primary School in Baston, Lincolnshire, was struggling to provide an adequate library space for its burgeoning school. With no alternative indoor space available, headteacher Rebecca Mills tasked their PTA with trying to solve the issue.

"The idea for the library bus came about in September 2018," said PTA chair Emma Bush. "After much research and visiting three schools who’ve used buses for outside space, we contacted Stagecoach East Midlands. They kindly donated an 02 plate double-decker." The task of renovating the bus then began.

Emma visited Brewers in Peterborough for advice and was put in touch with sales rep John Thorogood. John visited the bus, which had been installed at a local farm while the renovations took place, and specified the paint for the job.

The school had opted for a woodland theme to tie in with the bus’ final location alongside a coppice, and their forest-school roots, so Zinsser Allcoat Exterior tinted to Woodland Fern was used to paint the outside. Bedec MSP was used for inside.

"I advised a Class O product, it essentially being a classroom," said John. "Bedec MSP has test documents for Class O and was also the obvious choice with all the different surfaces inside." Tor and Bedec kindly offered discounts on their products, and all materials were donated by Brewers.

The ambitious renovation has been achieved through the support of local tradespeople – from upholsterers, to decorators, to glazers – and parent volunteers, so has been wonderful in bringing the community together. The PTA have also been very fortunate to secure external financial support. Their cumulative efforts have helped raise a whooping £36,000.
The finished bus will be used for quiet time, one-to-one sensory learning and after-school clubs. It will also be a place where elderly people and children come together in community reading social activities.

"The space the bus provides will have such a positive impact on the school and will help encourage the children to love to read," said Emma. "I think the best seat in the bus might be the driver’s seat. The children are going to love sitting there while reading and going off on the adventures in the book."

The renovations are now almost complete, with a grand unveiling scheduled for the beginning of July.

"It’s a fabulous project to be involved with," said John, who will be attending the opening. "It just goes to show what can be achieved with a bit of imagination!"
And so how many tins paint are needed to paint a double-decker?

"Six 5 litres of Bedec MSP and six 5 litres of Zinsser Allcoat Exterior,’ said John. "There were some other small bits for inside also."
