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.

La Montagne travels to Brooklyn

There is a tangible sense of achievement once a sketchbook project is concluded, a process has taken place from start to finish; from cover to cover. In reality however, it is never really completed, as there will always be ‘that’ little detail or textual element to enhance or embellish.

‘La Montagne’ is my most recent sketchbook, exploring geometric mountain-like forms, collaged onto a pre-defined booklet supplied by The Sketchbook Project in Brooklyn NY. With paper cut-outs assembled and mounted into position, my sketchbook was registered onto the project website to obtain its unique searchable barcode, before being placed in the post to commence its transatlantic voyage to the real-life library in New York.

This is quite an emotional feeling, a parting in as much as I will never see the sketchbook in its physical form again – or be able to add anything further to the ideas / collages mounted within. It will now reside on a different continent, catalogued and viewable within the offline library there, before being scanned into the projects’ online library and finally viewable worldwide across the web. Although never to return home to its studio of origin, I will see updates from time to time about its interactions and the places it visits, so we will never really lose touch.
