Miranda Gavin has been appointed as the new Editor and Project Developer for Frame and Reference on a part-time basis for six months.


Miranda Gavin is a freelance writer, medical order editor, photographer and educator. Speaking to Frame and Reference she said: “I was delighted to be appointed to work on and develop Frame and Reference. Visual arts in the South East is thriving and this is reflected in the current City of Culture bids by six south-east cities – Hastings and Bexhill; Portsmouth and Southampton; and Margate and Folkestone. Visitors to the partner galleries and organizations on the south-east coast have a huge choice of exhibitions and events scheduled to take place over the summer.


“Check out Frame and Reference for the latest news on what’s happening in the region, such as the launch of the Coastal Culture Trail over the weekend of the 8-9 June, as well as for arts criticism, features, reviews and interviews relating to visual arts. I’m looking forward to the next six months working on the project with the partners to make Frame and Reference a go-to resource for anyone interested in the visual arts in the South East region. If you have any suggestions for content, get in touch with me by email: editor@frameandreference.com.”
