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:

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.
