2nd September - 5th November, Folkestone Harbour

MEMO is an independant exhibition-project made in response to the 2017 Folkestone Triennial theme, Double Edge. This two person show is running throughout the length of the triennial and features works by artists Jack Sutherland and Hannah Weatherhead.

Printed works in note form will be displayed on Folkestone's public information hubs, with two new works added each week. They serve as a reminder that art can be displayed on accessible level to everyone, without being limited to the traditional confines of the gallery space. Made in response to their environment within a public space, these works carry no preoccupation with visitor numbers, and as short-lived displays, they will be photographed in situe and recorded online.

Jack Sutherland is a painter living and working in London, whilst Hannah Weatherhead is a painter living and working in Kent.

Upcoming exhibition - ORIEL DAVIES OPEN 2016 : PAINTING

I'm pleased to announce that my painting, Happy Faces Allowed has been selected for the Oriel Davies Open 2016 : Painting show.

Multiple Artists - 16 April 2016 - 15 June 2016
"The call for entries last Autumn generated an overwhelming response and after a challenging selection process for the judging panel we can reveal a superb line up of work by thirty two artists (a third of whom are currently based in Wales). The selection panel included Clare Woods, a leading international artist who had a large solo show at Oriel Davies in 2014 and subsequent Welsh tour (2015-2016); Nick Thornton, Head of Fine Art at Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, Cardiff; Dr Rebecca Daniels, Art Historical Researcher, Catalogue Raisonné of Francis Bacon and Alex Boyd Jones, Curator at Oriel Davies.

These artists present new and recent work that reflects the multiplicity of painting; whether abstract or figurative, representational or imagined. The scale, material and presentation varies enormously for example some works are created through mechanical intervention over a period of time while others require the viewer to move physically around them.

As we might imagine the work can be seen to be a reflection of our time, whether referring to the past and our understanding of it, the virtual worlds we operate in more frequently, the human psyche or our ongoing relationship with our physical environment. As viewers in a show like this we see dialogues, influences, the political and the social as well as a reflection of ourselves."

The exhibiting artists include: Ned Armstrong, Jo Berry, Louise Bristow, Melanie Carvalho, Clare Chapman, Corinne Charton, Tom Climent, Michelle Conway, Daniel Crawshaw, Martyn Cross, Rebecca Croxford, Tim Davies, Ken Elias, Renata Fernandez, Niki Hare, Judith Hay, Adam Hennessey, Nicholas Johnson, Natasha Kidd, Angela Lizon, Eva Nielsen, Sally Payen, Cherry Pickles, Tom Pitt, Clare Price, Andreas Rüthi, Mark Samsworth, DJ Simpson, André Stitt, Lexi Strauss, Hannah Weatherhead, Ellie Young.


‘Wearing Trousers’ collects together emerging and established female artists based in and around Thanet. 
Historically, women were prohibited from wearing trousers, both in legal and in societal terms. It was as recent as 2013 that a bylaw that prevented women from wearing trousers was lifted in Paris. This issue offers as a point from which to consider prohibitions that women have had to face, and are still facing in everyday pursuits, including the history of the conditions for female artists. 
Whilst not being grouped to satisfy a particular theme, the works in the show contribute to a wider conversation around the position that women occupy in the creative arts today. 

Artists exhibiting:
Rachel Boot, Catriona Clayson, Kim Conway, Lucy Crispin, Kay Cutler-McKenzie, Moyra Derby, Eloise Edwards, Emma Gibson, Kate Harrison, Sadie Hennesey, Elizabeth Loughran, Nova Marshall, Siobhan McGhee, Jemma Morgan, Jo Murray, Annie Nichols, Lucy Petet, Heidi Plant, Julia Riddiough, Carlos Romero, Lizzy Rose, Trish Scott, Heather Tait, Rebecca Taylor, Twinkle Troughton, Charley Vines, Hannah Weatherhead, Newton Whitelaw, Chris Yates

Crate, Margate. Opening hours: 11th-20th March, Friday- to Sunday 12-4pm.

POP LIVING group show - 11.02.15 – 28.02.2015

Dot will be in the group show POP LIVING at the Schwartz Gallery, London from 11.02.15 – 28.02.2015. Curated by Ismail Erbil.

Conceptual Pop. Conceptual Living. Pop Living invites artists to submit work that builds on ideas of ‘pop’ thinking in art and culture; the re/production of culture and living mediated through technology and advertising is captured in a constant techno-documentation of society and the self. The hyper-real and contemporary constructions of living come together in a celebrity-fuelled world of sleek design and fictional future-spaces.  Pop Living invites artists working with wall based work to respond to concepts of contemporary living, hyper-reality and transmitted spaces.
