A solo art exhibition by Jill Iliffe of paintings and drawings celebrating women with a passion for football. Jill was given access to current, future and past players and supporters by Lewes FC, which allowed her to interview and paint these women and girls, who love what they do and commit their lives to it. Using football as a starting point, Jill was fascinated by their approach to life and saw parallels with others pushing against the tide to create a life that fulfils them. Lewes FC is the only team to treat and pay women equally and this was why Jill was so happy to work with them in creating this exhibition.
Opening 11 until 30 November 2019 and will be held in the Depot Cinema, Lewes, Sussex.
Opening event 6.30-9 pm 11 November.
