SEAS Winter Open Studios 2014

South East Artists (SEAS)
WINTER OPEN STUDIOS 2014:
In and around Deal:
29/30 November & 6/7 December:

Following the success of this Summer’s Open Studio & Art Trail, members of SEAS (South East Artists) will be opening their houses and studios for the popular Winter Open Studio event. During the last weekend in November and the first weekend in December, 14 artists will be mounting festive exhibitions of their work, turning their homes and studios into temporary galleries open to the public.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas the SEAS Open Studios provide an ideal opportunity for discovering unique and memorable gifts that will surprise and please your family and friends. Shop at your leisure and in the welcoming environment of an artist’s house or studio for a unique selection of original and hand crafted items, from paintings, ceramics, prints and photographs, to glassware and textiles. Make a day of it and visit each of the venues to find affordable and distinctive items made by local artists and artisans.

Whether you are searching for a personal gift, gifts for the home, or even simply to treat yourself to something special, Jane Adorney’s whimsical collection of handcrafted jewellery, Bridget McVey’s Japanese inspired porcelain trays, bowls and vases and Kate Baker’s richly decorative mosaic and glass fusions will all be sure to catch your eye. Nicki Vowls, whose prints celebrating local heroes of WW1 and of the seas are well known locally and much coveted, will also have a selection of her popular, quirky automata to tempt you. When the decorations are taken down your walls need not be bare, as paintings, photographs and textile art feature in many of the venues. From Caroline Yates’ enigmatic paintings of crowds, Kath Love’s intricately stitched textiles, Liz Mott’s photographic land, sea and skyscapes, and Rosemary Stow’s unusual handmade rag rugs – all of the artists will extend a warm welcome and ensure that your Christmas shopping is a memorable adventure, rather than a chore. If you are searching for something small such as an unusual card or stocking filler, or if you want to push the boat out with a special gift such as a framed photograph, painting or textile, be sure not to miss this popular Winter Open Studio event in the heart of Deal and its neighbourhoods. Celebrate as you shop and feast on the variety of colour, texture and creativity that is available on your doorstep. A leaflet is available in the town with details of each studio and its opening times.

SEAS is an artist-led, self-funding and voluntary organisation that aims to promote, support and create opportunities for Deal’s vibrant creative community. Its members number artists and artisans working locally in a rich diversity of media, who bring many skills to the community through public exhibitions, community events and workshops across East Kent. The Open Studios offer an exclusive glimpse into the artists’ world, and a chance to discover and collect unique works of art and craft direct from the maker. Membership is open to anyone interested in supporting the arts, as an exhibiting member or as a friend.

Call for artists – SEAS Open Studios 2014

Are you interested in being part of our Open Studios and Art Trail this summer over 3 weekends in June and July during the Deal Festival of Music and Arts? This is a well established event that has been happening over the past 9 years for artists in and around Deal organised by SEAS (South East ArtistS), a local art group.

It’s a unique opportunity to sell, show and talk about your work to the public and to make contact with other local artists

Also this year we are also offering a free exhibition/selling place for an up and coming young artist at our Astor Theatre event. At this event last year we had 300 visitors and it would be an excellent venue for a young artist to display their work.
