NOW – December 2018
is all about YOU and Your Sevenoaks Art and Sole
FOOTFALL is a FREE inclusive celebratory Art project for everyone until Christmas.
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Is YOUR shoe exhibiting at The Stag Arts Centre now – July 28th.
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.
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 Gallery and building. Now making Art shoes with YOU until:
FOOTFALL Exhibition of your shoes from 3rd December – 5th 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.
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 lobby or you can do your own thing.
Call in to the Gallery lobby 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.
Your shoe can be made of anything in any size: paper, textile, paint, plaster, metal, plastic, print, wood, wool, glitter.

Katie Hayward Installation for FOOTFALL ‘Concrete Feet’
In 2017 Katie Hayward’s took concrete casts of over 70 pairs of student and teachers’ feet while she was artist in residence at Tonbridge School.
Hayward’s ‘A Sense of Place’ installation was exhibited in The Tunnel Gallery in Tonbridge School in December 2017.
Reimagined for ‘Embracing The Underdog’ in Chinatown, London in February 2018 with The London Group and Friends.
We are excited to welcome Katie and see them installed at Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery as ‘Concrete Feet’ 2018
‘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.
