The White Chair Gallery popped up in Deal last Saturday for it’s first public launch. Artists gathered with a wonderfully diverse array of white chairs, together with a piece of work each to exhibit.
Our first location was under the shade of large tree in the High Street, before moving on to outside the Astor theatre, with a final show to greet passengers disembarking from the Orient Express, which pulled in to Deal station early afternoon.
Many stopped to view the art on display and chat, while the impromptu gallery provided a great opportunity to bring art outside, into local public spaces. SEAS artists are now looking forward to the White Chairs gallery making its next exhibition tour.
A lone white chair from the White Chair gallery also appeared in Peene, Kent, last Sunday to join in the pop-up art show there.
