Dover PrintFest 17

Dover PrintFest 2017 will be hosted by the Dover Arts Collective on 26th, 27th & 28th of May, and we are excited to be joining this year’s 5th Fête de l’estampe with currently 222 artist printmaking events taking place across France, Belgium, Italy and the UK.

Artists Clare Smith, Chris Burke, Louisa Love, Kate Beaugie and Mike Tedder will be opening up their Dover studios and presenting a variety of completed and in-progress print-based work across their active workspaces as well as a group exhibition in the expansive project space upstairs.

The exhibition will also include wall based, hanging displays and artist books by a number of invited local artists, including: Joanna Jones, Moyra Derby, Sam Capell, Philippa Wall, Marcia Teusink, Rob McDonald, Tania McCormack, Andy Malone and John Dargate. The event will bring together both contemporary print and artists’ books looking to present an expansive view/idea of what print can be.

The open studios and exhibition space will be open at the following times:

Friday/vendredi 26/5: 14.00-18.00h
Saturday/samedi 27/5: 11.00-18.00h vernissage/celebration 18.00-20.00h

Une collection d’artistes basés à Dover et leurs invités ouvrent leurs ateliers au public, présentant des œuvres imprimées, complète ou en cours, dans leurs espaces de travail individuels ainsi qu’une exposition collective dans le grand espace de projet.

Tous sont invités à visiter cet événement gratuit et notre atelier, et la pré-réservation n’est pas nécessaire.

Submissions invited for ‘Poetry Is’

‘Poetry Is’ is a project undertaken in conjunction with the Deal Festival of Music and the Arts 2015.
The essence of this project is not just poetry as a discipline,
but poetry as a life-view: expressed artistically.
The whole world talks poetry; it is only we who, with elaborate ingenuity
manage to talk prose.
(G.K. Chesterton)

The Book
The heart of the project is a unique book, 12” Square, entitled POETRY IS
to be displayed on a lectern at the centre of an exhibition.
Each double page spread will be the unique work of an artist, writer, poet or a collaboration.
There will be no commercial aspect to the Poetry Is Book.
Its existence is to show that monetary value is not the only criteria for creative expression.
There are no fees for inclusion nor fees paid.
The book will not be sold, but given to an appropriate body, with the
proviso that, if it changes hands, it will again be given not sold.
For any questions please email christiandada@hotmail.co.uk
You can download more information about the project by clicking here.
