Dover Studio Collective opens its doors over the weekend of 19 and 20 October and invites and welcomes visitors to come along and talk to the artists about their work, some of which will be available to buy in time for Christmas!
Address and Directions:
Dover Studio Collective: 67 Astley Avenue, Dover, Kent CT16 2PW
Although parking is limited on site, there is plenty of parking space available within 50 meters, just beyond the railway bridge. There is a bus stop near the end of Astley Avenue (routes 15/89/90/61), and the studio can be reached on foot 1-2km or by taxi from either Dover railway station or ferry terminal.
This was a collaborative project for members of the East Cliff Creatives.
Creatives were paired together randomly to support, feedback and inspire each other to create a mini creative piece based on our chosen word, ‘Autumn’.
When we originally met to discuss a plan for the collaborative work, Amanda and I considered the possibility of creating some form of autumnal diorama. As ideas progressed however, a pared back gatefold design developed, which seemed visually stronger for losing the top and bottom distractions, concentrating attention upon the images radiating from a central point across Amanda’s left hand and Mike’s right hand panels.
Our Take On Autumn – Amanda and Mike
Exciting idea – displaying a collage in a Zurich venue as part of ‘Show-it’ hosted by ARTBOX.TALENT at the ARTBOX Gallery through October 2019.
Transmission (2019) mixed-media collage, 30x40cm CHF90.00
‘Transmission’ forms part of a mixed-media collage based poster series of images developing through 2019.
ARTBOX.TALENT is a non-profit platform that wants to offer artists the opportunity to show their art at no cost.
Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens, Dover, Kent
Saturday 3rd August 2019 (10:30-12:30)
The river runs through – a photographic exploration of water in Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens.
Join photographer Mike Tedder for this walk around Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens to celebrate the beauty of the River Dour.
You’ll need to bring your own camera or phone.
Please note that this workshop will focus on the creative aspects of photography, not the technical. Please wear sturdy walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather!
The workshop is free to attend, but places are limited. If you’d like to come along, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
A new mini-poster series has just become available this weekend. Each 16×12 inch (30x40cm) c-type photograph is professionally printed on Fuji Velvet flat matt paper, displayed with a (40x50cm) mount to fit a standard 40x50cm frame. Ten images are currently available in this format, limited to 15 examples each, with further designs in planning. This initial series will shortly be available to purchase directly from my studio shop (https://miketedder.net/shop), but in the meantime do drop me a message should you find a particular image of interest.
The current range of mini-posters available are illustrated here:
Five new monochrome paper-cut postcards (6×4 inch) completed for the International Postcard Exhibition at Participate Contemporary Artspace, Shrewsbury from 2nd August -24th August 2019.
