EKOH 2nd weekend

A beautiful sunny morning out and about in East Kent today as artists open up their houses and studios for the 2nd weekend of EKOH 2018 (East Kent Open Houses)
11am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
I am open in Dover as studio 7 listed in the Deal trail – so not too far as the crow flies.

Dover Studio Collective celebrates Fête de l’estampe

A collective of Dover-based artists and their guests are opening up their studio building to the public again, presenting both complete and in-progress print-based work across their active workspaces. The event, part of the sixth Fête de l’estampe festival, will bring together contemporary print and artists’ books and aims to present an expansive view / idea of what print can be. All are welcome to visit this free studio event and no pre-booking is required.

Saturday/samedi 26/5: 11.00-17.00h
Sunday/dimanche 27/5: 11.00-17.00h

Une collection d’artistes basés à Douvres et leurs invités ouvrent les portes de leurs ateliers au public. Ils présenteront des œuvres imprimées – complètes ou en cours – dans le cadre de leurs espaces de travail individuels ainsi que dans une exposition collective dans leur espace d’exposition. L’événement réunira l’impression contemporaine et des livres d’artistes avec l’intention de présenter une vision / idée expansive des possibilités de l’impression. Tous sont invités à visiter cet événement gratuit, et la réservation n’est pas nécessaire.

La Fête de l’estampe

Devenue au fil des années un succès, c’est un rendez-vous annuel à ne pas manquer. La Fête de l’estampe permet à un large public de découvrir dans une ambiance chaleureuse la richesse de ce moyen d’expression qui comprend la gravure, la lithographie, la sérigraphie ou encore les procédés numériques. Des expositions, des performances, des visites d’ateliers, stages, démonstrations, portes ouvertes, cours, conférences, ventes aux enchères, kakémonos géants, etc. sont organisés dans toute la France et même au-delà, en Europe, le jour de la Fête de l’estampe, autour du 26 mai 2018. La Fête de l’estampe 2018 reçoit le soutien du ministère de la Culture et de la Communication.

Over the years, the success of this festival has made it an unmissable event in the cultural calendar. With the support of the French ministry of Culture, La Fête de l’estampe provides a festive opportunity for many to discover this rich art that includes lithography, engraving, serigraphy, artists’ books and even digital prints. Exhibitions, outdoor studios, training sessions, open studios, conferences, performances, auctions, and giant prints are organised in France and in many other countries in Europe on 26th May, 2018, for one day, or longer in some areas.

East Kent Artists’ Open Houses

I am excited to be showing in East Kent Artists’ Open Houses for the first time this year. Although my studio is situated in Dover I am sharing the Deal Trail with some of my SEAS colleagues.

Welcome to East Kent Artists’ Open Houses 2017 or EKOH for short. Now in its 16th year, EKOH has gone from strength to strength with more artists than ever, over 200 spread over 67 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.

South East Artists Open Studios

In just under two weeks time, artists across Deal and Walmer will throw open the doors to their studios, houses and venues, welcoming visitors to South East Artists (SEAS) Open Studios.

Entry to all open studios locations on the art trail is free, and most are open from 10am to 5pm Saturdays and Sundays.This summer SEAS are promoting two group venues in Deal at the Astor Community Theatre and Deal Angling Club, whilst a number of individual locations are also hosting guest artists.
