Garden Gate Project to launch Flower Power exhibition and craft fair

Flower Power photographic show and craft fair

This Friday (December 15), in collaboration with Welsh-born photographer and former lecturer Jason Evans, Margate’s Garden Gate Project  will launch a Flower Power photographic show and craft fair.

All funds raised at the event, which takes place between Friday December 15 and Sunday, December 17, will  go to the Garden Gate charity. It opens with a special preview, bar and craft stall on Friday at Resort Studio, between 6pm – 9pm.

A photographic show12 months ago in the Garden’s tool shed, which was converted into a dark room for use, ran with spectacular effect.

Mr Evans, who is based in Pegwell, has seen his work exhibited at the Tate Gallery, London, in 2004, and was artist-in-residence at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada in 2013.

Paul Boyce, the Garden’s general manager, said: “It’s been another great year at the garden thanks to all our supporters and friends who make everything possible.

“Next year we will be featured in the National Open Garden scheme and look forward to welcoming lots of new visitors.”

Mr Evans added: “I love the atmosphere at the Garden, it’s an inspiring place to make work.

“This is the second year we’ve run photography sessions and the inventive creativity of the gardeners continues to shine. It’s going to be a beautiful show.”

Visitors are welcome to Resort Studios, Athelstan Road, Margate this Friday from 6pm. Times for the following two days are Saturday 11am-5pm and Sunday 11am-4pm.
