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.

‘Keeping true to our Maidstone roots, inspired by the historic Market and loosely based on the success of “The Art car boot fair”, the “Art Market” provides a public platform to all artists, organisations, collectives and galleries across Kent and the South East. Open to all art disciplines the Art Market gives exhibitors an opportunity to sell their work to the public, build a relationship with potential buyers, galleries and curators. With an informal approach to the fair we hope to engage a wider audience to celebrate and enjoy the arts.’

AROUNDNORTH

A collaboration with The Bay Trust
Installation creator Robert Jarvis
Musicians Stina Wilson and Andrey Debedev
Artists from SEAS

7.00pm – 10.00pm The Pines Calyx, St Margaret’s Bay CT15 6DZ

An immersive evening of art and music, together with Robert Jarvis’ sound installation that takes its inspiration from the apparent rotation of stars around the Celestial North Pole. As the Earth rotates and the stars appear to move slowly around Polaris, the North Star, the installation tracks the stars’ movements and interprets them as an evocative musical score. The evening will give the audience the opportunity to explore KRONOS – a path around the grounds which demonstrates in time from the ‘Big-Bang’ until the present day.

Musicians Stina Wilson (flute) and Andrey Debedev (guitar) take us on a musical journey through time and space, bringing to life works from a range of periods in the romantic grounds and within the Pines Calyx building throughout the evening. Simultaneously, artists from SEAS create live art to respond to the event, the environment and concepts.
