SDPT makes room for 'Room'
The Trust are delighted to have been kindly loaned the ROOM container gallery/studio space. The striking blue container will be familiar to some residents as it hosted part of the promenade ‘Open Aviary’ exhibition and has enjoyed several Sheppey locations in the past. Tucked away behind the Dockyard Church and recently redecorated inside by the Trust, the space will host a series of artists in residence who will be creating and showing work often inspired by the site, as well as sometimes offering creative workshops and open studio events.
Our first artist is Steve Mace who will be exploring the textures, colours and surfaces of the building in January, culminating in an exhibition of the work created.
If you are an artist or maker working in any medium and interested in using ROOM please contact the Trust for details of how to apply. Early use of the space will be free to artists as we pilot the programme.
