Artistic roots in woods
An arts display attracted scores of visitors to King’s Wood in Challock last weekend.
King’s Wood Interventions which took place last Saturday was guided by organisers Diane Comley from Stour Valley Creative Partnership (SVCP) and Peter Hoffer from University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury.
Visitors were given a personal introduction to 11 pieces of art work displayed or performed that evening.
Many of the artists were also on hand to talk about and answer questions on the ideas behind their interventions.
The range of work varied from sound and performance pieces to sculptures and video installations.
Guests stopped half way at SVCP’s Forest Studio for refreshments, and to look at work by artists who have enjoyed residencies there in the past year.
Harriet Dew from Whitstable said: “It was a wonderful and magical evening.”
SVCP’s vision aims to engage a wide audience with art and King’s Wood through interpretation, educational programmes and facilitating new commissions of works of art in King’s Wood and the wider landscape.
It is the second year of collaboration with partners University for the Creative Arts at Canterbury and University of Kent’s School of Fine Arts.
