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.
