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.

Reflections on the Landscape: Against the Tide

24/25 February 2018 10 – 6pm
River Garage Studios, River Street, River, Kent CT17 0RB

Reflections on the Landscape: Against the tide will be the inaugural exhibition held at the recently opened River Garage Studios. The exhibition will show work from nine artists based in Dover.
Each artist voluntarily submitted work to be included in the exhibition. The only criteria for their selection was that they lived and worked in Dover and the surrounding area. As a result their work has been influenced by the unique visual and cultural history of the town.
Dover is moulded by its tide, a place always bringing in new life and ideas, as well as a place shaped and defined by its history. It is a town as relevant today as it has ever been.
Through bringing these artists together we can reflect on the influence of place and environment on their work; whether economic, cultural, visual or ecological.

Exhibiting artists:
Kate Beaugie – Joseph Black – Drew Burrett – Samuel Capell – Paul Dagys –
Benjamin Hunt – Joanna Jones – Clare Smith – Mike Tedder

Curated by Joseph Black and Louise Webb
Free entry.
