Openshore - Triptych oil painting on un-bleasched antique linen

 

'Open Shore'

 

A triptych oil painting on antique linen.

 


 Dungeness beach is a marvellous landscape shaped by the near constant winds and the occasional onslaught of fearsome elements.

Endlessly inspirational, it requires no filter or exaggeration – one cannot cheat one's way to it through the use of tricky compositional techniques.

These reflected manifestations were painted with versimilitude.

 In a gale.

The wind was strong enough to flex the perspex windows of the handy little shed at Openshore creating a distortion which expressed the reflected force of the wind. 

I was intrigued and made these paintings.

Lynda and Ron Wilson | A Virtual Showcase at Dungeness Beach Batch Patch


Dungeness Open Studios

Last year, in common with the rest of the world, we were making plans at Dungeness Open Studios for the future. One of these was to offer one of the Open Studio buildings and adjoining garden as a showcase venue for artists, known as Dungeness Beach Batch Patch

Then came COVID-19. 

Edinburgh-based artists Lynda and Ron Wilson were due to be showing here from the 10-12 July 2020 but we all came to the sad conclusion that now is not the right time, especially as lockdown rules are different in Scotland.

Instead, we offered them a ‘virtual’ showcase which has now taken place. 
 
Lynda and Ron are regular visitors to Dungeness and we are proud to support them in this way at this unprecedented time.

We fully intend to welcome them in person next year. Watch this space...

Paddy and Bridget.

COVID-19 | CURRENT STATUS

Published 9 November 2020
 
Studios are closed until at least 2 December 2020 dependent upon government advice.
 
Published 4 October 2020

We have been open for nearly four months since lockdown and several hundred people have now enjoyed our COVID-safe experience.

Currently, all visitors must call Paddy on 07815 047307 for prompt access.

The studios are closed and cleaned between visitors and the NHS venue check-in QR code is available to scan on entry.

Visitors are able to take their time and each group (of up to six people maximum) has exclusive, intimate access to the studios, which has proved to be very successful. Artworks and the garden can be viewed at a leisurely pace and we can answer questions, make sales or remain completely hands-off to suit.

The 'call to view' system has worked so well that we have decided not to return to the open-door, access all areas policy that we employed in the past.

Plans for the year ahead are ongoing, including bookings for artist showcases within the studio complex (Dungeness Beach Batch Patch). We already have confirmed bookings for next June and July (2021), details of which will be made available closer to the time.

We aim to offer more artists' residencies and practical workshops for sculptors, painters, musicians, writers and photographers, providing exhibition space for artists from outside this area.

Thank you to everyone that has called from the door and made our herculean efforts during lockdown so worthwhile. 

Paddy Hamilton and Bridget Wilkins

*Happy announcement*

#Dungeness Open Studios 
is now open by easy appointment 

We have established a one way system which gives generous access to the garden areas

Strict cleaning will take place between each visit

Appointments welcomed 

*Contact us*



Published 17 April 2020

Dungeness Open Studios are currently closed to all visitors.

We will (C-19 circumstances allowing) be open again by prior arranged appointment from mid June.

We aim to offer more artists' residencies and practical workshops for sculptors, painters, musicians, writers and photographers, providing exhibition space for artists from outside this area. We need to develop our programme during this period.

For 22 years, we have provided a showing space on Dungeness beach, which has developed from one studio to four over the period. Free to enter, operating on trust and goodwill, the work here celebrates and informs the public about this community, its history and its relevance outside of its reputation as a resort/tourist destination. All works directly reflect this wonderful and unique landscape. All my income as a sole trader comes from the selling of related works, postcards, books, workshops and residencies. Our inclusive and affordable pricing structure reflects our desire for people to be able to experience and own art democratically. Organised visits and talks with students of all ages are common practice and we have welcomed many thousands of visitors here for over two decades without any external funding, grants or bursaries.

We have had to close the studios entirely and cancel upcoming shows, residencies and workshops. After each event, we learn more about what artists require from our spaces and our in the main hands-off overview. We need to re-model showing spaces, access points, create garden areas, provide shelter and consider safe spaces for the future. We do not envisage that more than one person at a time will be able to visit these small spaces for the foreseeable future. This requires thought and practical development including our online presence, which will become crucial to keeping our core values visible and accessible. I have no current income to develop anything further but I do have infrastructure which can be made ready to meet the challenges of the future new normal regarding public access and interaction.

My current practice relies on the generosity and feedback of the people who visit, their ideas, expertise and enthusiasms. This creates Dungeness Open Studios in symbiosis, working as it does with this wonderful beach.

Currently our website and social media presence are who we are.

A bursary would remove this anxiety and help us to create peace of mind/solvency for us to develop our presence as an online entity, but with a secure foundation of having remodelled the experience, the access points and showing spaces to suit the future.

Examples of projected costs:

Web costs: copywriting and proofreading -- £30 per hour -- £600 Building materials including timber, fixings, signage, paints, preservatives, roofing materials, display items, barriers, gates, soft landscaping to create a slower, subtle flow of visitors. Safety equipment -- £600
