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.

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.
