Artists are again preparing to open their homes and studios as part of a popular exhibition trail.
After a one year pandemic hiatus, South East Artists (SEAS) is putting on its Open Studios event over two weekends - starting on Saturday.
Thirty seven creative folk are showcasing their work ranging from ceramics, photography, printmaking, textiles, sculpture, and painting.
They are based in St Margaret’s Bay, River, Walmer and Deal and there are some group shows at the Angling Club and the Landmark Centre in Deal.
The Open Studio trail has become a successful event for both the community and the artists that take part.
Publicist Martin Cherry said: "The art trail widens this year, and you must visit Amanda Thompson in River and David Souter and Maggie Baur in St Margaret’s Bay.
"Both are beautiful areas to visit with some great scenery and there is work on view that's even more stunning."
Artists are exhibiting in mini group shows with Chris Birbeck, Caroline Raffan Helen Komatsu, and Kate Baker showcasing at 17 Manor Road, Deal CT14 9BT.
Their work ranges from textiles, glass fusion, and mosaic.
Patricia Barry is exhibiting from her home at Lodge 8, The Chequers, Golf Road CT14 6RG, which is along the Ancient Highway.
Visitors should follow signs for the Chequers Kitchen.
Her artist friends Mollie Winters and Penny Berkeley will also be showing their work of textiles, needlework, painting, and printmaking.
You can also visit Kaye Walls and Sandra Tracey at 3 Old Gaol, North Barracks, Walmer CT14 7UN. They are showing indoor and outdoor mosaic, recycled art, and ceramics.
With other artists exhibiting from their studios in Deal and the larger venues at the Landmark Centre and the Angling Club it is a true Art Trail.
Mr Cherry added: "We look forward to seeing you and to enjoy a great summer".
The studios are open 10-5 this Saturday and Sunday and next weekend.
