The controversial Maggi Hambling, known for her paintings of George Melly for the National Portrait Gallery and Scallop, the sculpture celebrating Benjamin Britten on Aldeburgh Beach, will be displaying her work on October 23.

The exhibition, titled Maggi Hambling - in conversation with Martha Kearney, will be the third that the artist has hosted at The Corn Mill. It draws together themes from her most recent works, which have been inspired by the sea, off her native Suffolk coast.

Maggie Hambling's art work is not afraid to tackle controversial subjects including death, war and climate change.

Her self-portraits range from the 'large and quirky' to fierce images of self-examination.

Tickets are £5 from The Corn Hall box office on 01379652241 or www.thecornhall.co.uk
