The exhibition shows the changing faces of Sussex over the years
The changing face of the Sussex landscape over the centuries is being portrayed in an exhibition of artwork dating back as far as 1771.

Sussex Seen, at Ditchling Museum, is part of the Brighton Festival and celebrates the diversity of the county.

It also shows the different ways artists have depicted similar scenes.

Museum director Hilary Williams said the images represented work and play, and included scenes of the seaside and of people working the land.

40th anniversary

William Nicholson, Eric Ravilious, Charles Knight and Jem Southam are among artists included in the exhibition, which runs until 4 June.

This year's Brighton Festival is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

It began last Friday with a parade by more than 4,000 children from 70 primary schools through the city.

Festival organisers have promised 10 world premieres and five UK premieres on the programme.

It also includes more than 700 arts events including theatre, dance, performance, music and literature events and activities for children and families.
