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.

14th/15th, 21st/22nd & 28th/29th October 2017
11am – 5pm (unless stated)
http://ekoh.org.uk/deal/

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.

Art Market Maidstone

If you are in the Maidstone area later this month, why not visit the Art Market at the Lockmeadow Market Hall on September 30th, and say hello to SEAS artists Kate Baker and Mike Tedder who will be showing some of their work there.

Experience the vibrancy of the contemporary art scene on Saturday 30th September, with Maidstone’s Art Market at the town’s historic Lockmeadow Market Hall.
The Art Market is an affordable art event bringing together artists from across Kent and the South East showcasing some of the best contemporary art available.


‘Keeping true to our Maidstone roots, inspired by the historic Market and loosely based on the success of “The Art car boot fair”, the “Art Market” provides a public platform to all artists, organisations, collectives and galleries across Kent and the South East. Open to all art disciplines the Art Market gives exhibitors an opportunity to sell their work to the public, build a relationship with potential buyers, galleries and curators. With an informal approach to the fair we hope to engage a wider audience to celebrate and enjoy the arts.’

Sun’s out – cyanotype time!


The sun was shining brightly at last, providing an opportunity to experiment exposing a few more cyanotypes. Cutting out paper and card to make stencils was one of today’s explorations. These were then laid on top of the sensitised cotton fabric. An old modified contact printing frame, originally made for 35mm negatives to produce a 10×8 inch photographic contact print, is perfect for keeping the stencil in place, with enough pressure when closed, to stop light leaking underneath a heat-warped stencil in the noon-day sun. The exposure (at around midday) was 20 minutes, which produced a rich indigo blue in the exposed areas of fabric, and still registered the star printed mulberry paper ‘clothing’.
The orange fabric, with a similar exposure, produced a really deep indigo colour, but the mulberry paper detail was a little over exposed, (although I still like the effect).
It is a little hit-and-miss judging exposures, due to the different intensity of the sun as it arcs from morning to afternoon, and the variable of fabric cyanotype coatings from different batches, but is still really exciting when the densities ‘work’ and all parts of the stencil are visible.

AROUNDNORTH

A collaboration with The Bay Trust
Installation creator Robert Jarvis
Musicians Stina Wilson and Andrey Debedev
Artists from SEAS

7.00pm – 10.00pm The Pines Calyx, St Margaret’s Bay CT15 6DZ

An immersive evening of art and music, together with Robert Jarvis’ sound installation that takes its inspiration from the apparent rotation of stars around the Celestial North Pole. As the Earth rotates and the stars appear to move slowly around Polaris, the North Star, the installation tracks the stars’ movements and interprets them as an evocative musical score. The evening will give the audience the opportunity to explore KRONOS – a path around the grounds which demonstrates in time from the ‘Big-Bang’ until the present day.

Musicians Stina Wilson (flute) and Andrey Debedev (guitar) take us on a musical journey through time and space, bringing to life works from a range of periods in the romantic grounds and within the Pines Calyx building throughout the evening. Simultaneously, artists from SEAS create live art to respond to the event, the environment and concepts.
