The Greatest Little Art Show 2

I have made a small painting especially for this secret-postcard fundraising art event in aid of The Mill and Forest Churches Emergency Night Shelters. It is a secret so you will have to guess which is mine.

Exhibition: 8 September – 1 October 2016
Raffle draw: 1 October.
Online raffle sales close 30 Sept at 6pm sharp.

"The Greatest little Art Show & Raffle 2" 
100 postcard-sized pieces of art to raffle, donated by local special needs school children, artists, local luminaries and a very famous street artist. 

The funds raised this year will help pay our rent and keep us open to all for another year, also help pay for up to 50 local people to have a warm bed for the night in the emergency night shelter.

The exhibition and raffle runs 8th September until 1st October.  Private view, Thursday 8th September 6.30-9.30 
There's also a closing gala, Saturday 1 October 10-4 at The Mill, there will be mocktails, cake and of course the raffle which starts at 2pm.  All the postcards will be on display, you can meet most of the artists and you'll be the first to taste our new mocktails- The Mill Mojito & The Coppermill Sunset.

After the Sea

After The Sea
An exhibition on the seafront in Margate.
29 September - 30 October 2016

Look out of the window of Bernie’s Chocolate Bar and you’ll see the shining Margate sands, the sea and across the harbour the Turner Contemporary. Inside, for the whole month of October, the walls will be filled with work by two artists: Julie Caves (that's me) and H Locke. The exhibition will include over 30 paintings, drawings and prints.

Having set up a studio in Margate in 2014, Julie Caves and H Locke spend a lot of time by the sea – beachcombing, painting and drawing – with regular pit stops in Bernie’s to defrost from the off-season wintery seaside weather. They have explored Margate and Cliftonville during the recent years of transition for the area and this has heavily influenced the work they are showing.

'Of all the buzzwords we've had to get used to over the past few years, ('buzzwords' included) 'austerity' is one of the most popular. Popular with agenda-pushing politicians, that is. Not necessarily so welcome to the rest of us.
In the spirit of hope (against hope) we'd like to offer our Summer show, chosen from among studio1.1's membership. We asked for excess, exuberance and excitement. We got all of those in good measure and some sharp doses of irony too. We hope it helps.'
