Artis­tic roots in woods

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

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.
