Reflections on the Landscape: Against the Tide

24/25 February 2018 10 – 6pm
River Garage Studios, River Street, River, Kent CT17 0RB

Reflections on the Landscape: Against the tide will be the inaugural exhibition held at the recently opened River Garage Studios. The exhibition will show work from nine artists based in Dover.
Each artist voluntarily submitted work to be included in the exhibition. The only criteria for their selection was that they lived and worked in Dover and the surrounding area. As a result their work has been influenced by the unique visual and cultural history of the town.
Dover is moulded by its tide, a place always bringing in new life and ideas, as well as a place shaped and defined by its history. It is a town as relevant today as it has ever been.
Through bringing these artists together we can reflect on the influence of place and environment on their work; whether economic, cultural, visual or ecological.

Exhibiting artists:
Kate Beaugie – Joseph Black – Drew Burrett – Samuel Capell – Paul Dagys –
Benjamin Hunt – Joanna Jones – Clare Smith – Mike Tedder

Curated by Joseph Black and Louise Webb
Free entry.

Take part in SEAS Open Studios 2018

SEAS Open Studios/ Art Trail is run almost concurrently with the Deal Festival of Music and Arts, during which time artists welcome the public to view their work over two compulsory weekends;
Sat 30th June – Sun 1st July and concluding on Sat 7th – Sun 8th July 2018.
We will again be hiring the Astor and have the Angling Club available too, if artists feel they’d like to be more central or, for a variety of reasons, can’t open their studio. This year we are again optionally incorporating additional events to our Open Studios (see section D and F) so please fill in appropriately.
The artists who organise Open Studios operate in an unpaid and voluntary capacity. The smooth running of the event therefore relies on all the artists taking part in helping us.

Please find below the application form for SEAS OPEN STUDIOS for 30th June-1st July AND 7th July-8th July 2018. I’m sending it now as design of the brochure is time dependent and the form has been altered in light of the core meeting held on 15/1 and so all relevant payment dates and event information can be found on the form. Any further questions please ask at the members meeting on 19/1/2018

If you do not wish to participate in OS this year, but would be happy to help with promotion and distribution of leaflets or any other aspect please let us know either at the members meeting on this Fri evening or before.
