SEAS Open Studios 2021

We are back!

South East Artists (SEAS) are excited to announce that our Open Art Trail is back for 2021. It has been a regular feature for many years organised by dynamic artists featuring new work ranging from ceramics, photography, printmaking, textiles, sculpture, and painting. It seems a lifetime ago that we last exhibited due to the pandemic, but it is lovely to see galleries and studios open and all the artists are keen to meet you to discuss their new work.

Based in St Margaret’s Bay, River, Walmer and Deal, artists open their studios to the public with group shows at the Angling Club and the Landmark Centre in Deal.

There are a total of 32 artists taking part over two consecutive weekends 19/20 & 26/27 June. The Open Studio trail has become a successful event for both the community and the artists that take part.

The Open Studios catalogue will be available from our launch event ‘Small is Beautiful’ at the Deal Angling Club and the Deal Town Market which takes place on the 5 June. You will be able to meet some of the artists and learn where they will be exhibiting during Open Studios and view some of their postcard size artwork. The catalogue will be available the end of May and includes a map of the art trail and lists all the participating artists.

The art trail widens this year, and you must visit Amanda Thompson in River and David Souter and Maggie Baur in St Margaret’s Bay. Both beautiful areas to visit with some great scenery and their work is even more stunning.

Artists are exhibiting in mini group shows with Chris Birbeck, Caroline Raffan Helen Komatsu, and Kate Baker at 17 Manor Road, Deal CT14 9BT. Their work ranges from textiles, glass fusion, and mosaic. Patricia Barry is exhibiting from her home at Lodge 8, The Chequers, Golf Road CT14 6RG, which is along the Ancient Highway. Just follow signs for the Chequers Kitchen. Her artist friends Mollie Winters and Penny Berkeley will also be showing their work of textiles, needlework, painting, and printmaking.

You can also visit Kaye Walls and Sandra Tracey at 3 Old Gaol, North Barracks, Walmer CT14 7UN. View their indoor and outdoor mosaic, recycled art, and ceramics. With other artists exhibiting from their studios in Deal and the larger venues at the Landmark Centre and the Angling Club it is a true Art Trail. We look forward to seeing you and to enjoy a great summer

Postcards from Lockdown

As part of the ARTISTS SAVE THE ASTOR initiative, we are inviting people to make a postcard sized work (10 x 15cm) on the theme of lockdown. This is something for EVERYONE to be part of (not just artists) and we hope a real cross-section of our community will contribute. It can be text, a drawing, collage or painting, a photograph, any medium at all. On the back, just add your name and anything else you’d like to say. Every original work will be added to a small compilation of up to 10 postcards, with each unique set to be raffled as part of the ARTISTS SAVE THE ASTOR initiative.

So, please spread the word among your families, friends and neighbours. The more postcards the better. They can be posted or popped through the letterboxes of Deirdre Kashdan, 13 St Andrews Rd, Deal or Rebecca Bain Smith, 172 High Street, CT14 6BQ. We’d like cards by FRIDAY 7th AUGUST please, ready for the raffle in September.

THANK YOU !

SEAS Open Studios 2020

It is with great regret that we have made the decision to cancel OPEN STUDIOS 2020 and its launch event SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL for the safety and well-being of our artists and the visiting public.

OS was planned for the last two weekends of June but given the uncertainty surrounding easing of lockdown and the continuing risks of contagion, we feel we cannot commit to going ahead with these events.

We remain positive and hope our planned autumn and winter events will take place. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram where we will showcase our work and keep you informed of future developments and events.

We looked forward to seeing you soon at one of our events. Stay healthy and best wishes from all of our artists.

East Kent Artists’ Open Houses

Welcome to East Kent Artists’ Open Houses 2019 or EKOH for short. Now in its 19th year, EKOH has gone from strength to strength with more artists than ever, over 200 artists spread over 70 houses and studios. We are also delighted to include Margate, Cliftonville and Deal and hope to extend our range around Kent’s Creative Coast.

The artists’ trail gives the public a personal insight into how an artist works within their specialised field. It opens up a wealth of information and interest to pave the way for making new contacts and discovering opportunities for anyone interested in taking up new fields of creativity. The trail is your chance to visit artists in their homes, to speak to them in person about their work and to find out what is happening in your local area. This is a rare opportunity to experience a diverse array of high quality work in a relaxed setting; with so many venues to choose from there should be something for everyone. So, plan your trip and prepare to be inspired and surprised.
All houses are open weekends during the festival

12th/13th, 19th/20th, 26th/27th October 2019 – 11am – 5pm (unless stated)
