‘The River Runs Through’ is a photographic trail in Kearsney exploring images of streams and lakes within the park landscape. Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens are the most popular, historic parks in Dover which are located 2.5 miles north west of Dover town centre in the Alkham Valley, part of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens provides many opportunities to take really beautiful photographs. Why not download the Kearsney Parks photography trail and capture what you see on the way? The trail has been developed by photographer/artist Mike Tedder. He suggests a route to follow and has given lots of tips for photos that you might like to photograph. https://www.kearsneyparks.co.uk/Resources/Photography.aspx

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.
