Kent’s International Artist Book and Print Event

Location: Herbert Read Gallery, UCA Canterbury Time: 10:30 am- 18:00 pm
All Inked Up is an International Artist Book and Print Event spread over two venues, UCA, Canterbury and The Brewery Tap, Folkestone, comprising of an Artist Book and Print Fair, Symposium, Workshops and a final Exhibition of four internationally acclaimed artists at The Herbert Read Gallery UCA, Canterbury.
The event will build the audiences awareness of the Artist book as a primary medium and method in artistic practice to introducing the broad possibilities that the book format covers, from Illustrative narrative to sculptural forms through to digital, audio/video and performance work.
The Event will feature over 30 Internationally recognised Book Arts from Spain, South Korea, Japan, Holland, Germany, Portugal, Ireland as well as the U.K; the work of Staff and Students from European Universities, Spain, Norway, Ireland, Scotland and England as well as local Artistic community in the South East, Resort Studio, Open School East, Intra, DBA Print studios and Folkestone’s Creative Quarter.
Kate has set up a Just Giving page to enable people to donate towards a memorial for Phyllis. This will hopefully raise £500 to Commission and install an enamel memorial plaque to Phyllis McDowell, sited along the Old High Street, Folkestone where she often painted.
Phyllis McDowell meant so much to so many people in Folkestone, particularly amongst the creative community.
In memory of her contribution to the town we would like to commission an enamel plaque of one of her paintings and arrange for it to be permanently installed along the Old High Street.
