‘Feet of Clay’ Porcelain shoes by Alison Swan

Alison Swan is an artist fascinated by objects with a patina of age and wear, the scarred surfaces and disintegrating forms of which give rise to imagined histories. This is reflected in her ceramic practice through an exploration of surface texture, muted tone and mark-making. Her work is entirely hand-built and fashioned from thinly-rolled, high-fired porcelain and stoneware paperclays, sometimes decorated with oxides, slips or glazes. Her porcelain pieces in this exhibition are ghostly reminders of our journey through childhood and adolescence. The connotations of ‘feet of clay’ – our all too human frailty and fallibility.

FOOTFALL a celebratory Art project for everyone

 is all about YOU

FOOTFALL an inclusive celebratory Art project for everyone that will run from now until Christmas.

The remit for SVAF running the Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery as an artist led space has a focus on increasing numbers of the public and arts community visiting the Gallery space. Increasing its profile and visibility.

As we approach the end of our first year, we aim to do this with a project about shoes and feet throughout the Kaleidoscope building, Gallery and the surrounding streets of Sevenoaks.

We would like to invite residents; schools, organisations, businesses and members of the community to be part of FOOTFALL by making a fabulous creative shoe or footprint.

We aim to fill the Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope building and Gallery

FOOTFALL 1           19th March – closing Saturday 7th April.

Making Art shoes with YOU until:

FOOTFALL 2               3rd December – 3rd January

This project is yours:

Whatever your age if you are a resident or friend of Sevenoaks you can be part of FOOTFALL by making a shoe.  

The shoe could reflect who you are, your interests or what you do.

Your shoe can be made of anything in any size: paper, textile, paint, plaster, metal, plastic, print, wood, wool, glitter.

OR

We have hundreds of new soft shoes to use as a starting point. What will you do with yours?

You can cut into it, add on to it, paint it, sew it, print on it, sculpt onto it. Let your imagination run riot

Look at making ideas in the Gallery or you can do your own thing.

Call in to the Gallery and take a shoe.

If you run a business in or around Sevenoaks then we can make you a shoe that reflects your business for a small fee. Sponsored shoes will have the business name and card/website linked.

OR

Rub the bottom of your shoe using wax crayon, pencil etc on card or thick paper. Cut it out and bring it to the Gallery.

OR

Draw round your shoe and decorate it. Any media, style or subject. A self portrait ? 

Cut it out and bring it into the Gallery.

We will add your shoe or footstep to the project, remember  to leave your name.

Drop in and join us for the PV Thursday 5th April 4 30 – 7 30pm.

PLAY!

Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states 

‘That every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.’ 

SVAF artists have responded to the theme ‘PLAY’ in engaging, extraordinary and challenging ways. Much of this exhibition, in the Kaleidoscope Gallery, Sevenoaks, is interactive. Children and adults will find objects and images to react to, to enjoy and to wonder at.

Paintings, prints, montages, sculptures and models await your presence: only then will they spring into life!

Play is the highest form of research. – Albert Einstein

THE SEARCH FOR THE DEEP SELF

Deborah Ravetz  27th November – 9th December

 

MUPF3316  IMG_2307   IMG_2308 (1)

Deborah Ravetz writes…

‘I work as a ​​painter, a writer, lecturer and practitioner of Social Sculpture. Last year I published a book called The Art of Being Human, in which these strands come together in synthesis. This event will concentrate on my social sculpture project, ‘The Search for the Deep Self’.

Issues of individuality and freedom will be explored. Joseph Beuys coined the phrase Social Sculpture because he wanted to widen the remit of art to include much more than objects. He famously said that everyone was an artist.   What he meant was that in each one of us there is the capacity to re-imagine the world. In this event these concepts will become concrete’.

Making my mark exhibition

Screen Shot 2017-10-18 at 10.15.26

‘Making  my mark’

 Kent county Council’s Specialist Fostering Team supports children and young people with disabilities, alongside their foster and Short Break families throughout Kent. Thoughts and feelings about their lives and experiences can often go unnoticed or unheard so we invited these children and young people, as well as their foster and Short Break families, to make their mark on plain white canvas.

 The result is an exhibition of very different and contrasting images that capture their voices in a variety of different ways.  It is uplifting, heart-warming, touching and very personal to all those who have contributed to date and continues to be built on as new canvases come in.

 It reminds us that they are all individuals in their own right and when they come together they shine with a shared sense of belonging and positive self-worth.

 This exhibition will travel round Kent exhibiting at Folkestone Quarter House, Gravesend, Sheerness Library, Canterbury, Sessions House Gallery Maidstone and Thanet (Dates to be confirmed.

sketchpad2 300dpi-3

During October 2017 artist Nicole Mollett will be in residence in the Kaleidoscope Gallery, using the space as her studio during the week.

‘Drawn To The Light  Magic Lantern Workshop’

During October 2017 artist Nicole Mollett will be in residence in the Kaleidoscope Gallery, using the space as her studio during the week.

Situated above a library, the Gallery is well suited for an artist who regularly uses books and encyclopaedias as a starting point for her ideas.The artist will explore the idea of drawing as a language, using visual images to tell stories and make connections.

Inside the Kaleidoscope library there will be two sculptures on display. A Frail Happiness and Darkness Visible are a pair of show box dioramas made just before the 2017 election. The viewer is invited to peer into miniature worlds containing hand-painted scenes, suggesting the parallel existences of heaven and hell.

Darkness visible showbox                   Darkness Visible inside view                 

The Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Museum collection contains a series of magic lantern slides painted in the 17th century by local artist William Knight.These glass slides were projected onto the walls of a darkened room to conjure up fantasies of beasts and exotic lands. Mollett also paints her own magic lantern slides, and works collaboratively with artist Frog Morris to repurpose these Victorian theatrical devices to perform contemporary tales.

Nicole Mollet and Frog Morris

There will be a special slide making half term workshop.Participants can explore a number of techniques to produce their own images, and then see them projected alongside the original slides.

About the Artist

Nicole Mollett is a multi-disciplinary artist. Her work features drawing, sculpture and magic lantern performances. When drawing, her imagined realities are composed using images from early encyclopaedias together with photographs found online. She is known for her detailed drawings and maps, which reveal hidden narratives, and suggest alternative histories.

Nicole completed her Sculpture MFA at the Slade School of Art. Her work features in several publications including a collection of maps of London called ‘Curiocity’ published by Particular Books in August 2016. She has exhibited and performed in many museums and galleries including Whitechapel Gallery, Space Station 65 Gallery, Jerwood Space and Tunbridge Wells Gallery. She has run public engagement workshops and educational projects with organisation such as the Barbican and Milton’s Cottage Trust.

Her public art commissions include a mobile artwork, the Kent Baton, which travelled the county of Kent 2010 – 2012, during the Olympics. The artist was recently commissioned with writer Sarah Butler, to produce an online digital archive of drawings as part of Creative People and Places project. Entitled ‘More Than 100 Stories’ 2016.
