The atists met at 'Waterfalls and Slaughden Waves' an exhibition by Maggi Hambling at the Peter Pears Gallery in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, on April 26 2008. Zacron and Hambling had exhibited together at Salthouse on the North Norfolk coast in 2007. The exhibition was curated by James Coalman proprietor of the Coalman Gallery in London's West End.
The coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh present an intensity of creative arts that draws upon the vibrant character of the area.
Maggi Hambling has made the town of Aldeburgh and in paticular the atmosphere of the coast itself, her own. Her sculpture on the beach has carved a reputation in the district becoming Aldeburgh's 'Angel of the North' shell-form to delight surprise and intrigue the eye.
The DVD film 'Storm' (Benjamin Britten, Maggi Hamling) by Christopher Newson is shown during the exhibition.
