After a chance meeting one Sunday at Paul's exhibition 'From Creek to Coast', he received an invite to exhibit at LV21's exhibition 'Tides of Change' as part of Kent's Coastal Week 2013. A Kent County Council event promoting the Kent Coast. The many free and subsidised offerings explore the dynamic nature of Kent's coastline, past, present and future. This year's theme, 'Changing Coast'.
Paul's work around the Creek's and Estuary were very suited to both the theme and venue, he showed a number of pieces of work, more of his panels on reclaimed board, as they fitted rather well with the environment, also less glass to smash.
The Light Vessel 21 is a stunning ship and it was a super event to be involved with. The Launch party was great fun and Paivi, Gary and Crew are working very hard to create something really rather special.
Date: Launch 25th October then 28th October – Saturday 2nd November | 11:00am – 4:00pm | Admission: Free

TIDES OF CHANGE
28th October – 2nd November 11-4pm | Free
A group exhibition featuring a variety of artwork by local, national and international artists, both professional and amateur, from paintings, prints, drawings and collages to sculptural installations, sound, film and written word – all inspired by the ever-changing coast.
LV21 will be awash with coastal themed artwork throughout the decks, cabins and passageways; from a selection of works by artist Billy Childish to Anna Falcini’s intricate line drawings and Estuary Eulogies, from Fiona Spirals’ Ripping Landscapes and poems to Laurie Harpum’s ‘Cliff Creatures’ and Julie Bradshaw’s installation of memories, from ‘Mudlark’ Nick Stewart’s driftwood furniture and Malcolm Wright’s instruments to Paul Fowler’s paintings on salvaged timber, from Daniel Nash’s concrete ‘floating anchors’ to Germander Speedwell’s verses and Richard Skelton’s musical piece… just to name a few…
Also featured on board is London-based artist Jasone Miranda-Bilbao’s Nylon Thread, a short video documenting the production of nylon thread out of recycled plastic material. Descend into the lower deck generator room and get immersed in the sounds and sights of this intriguing mechanical process of change.
On Thu 31 October public get a chance to meet our first Lookout artists-in-residence Jim Backhouse and Magz Hall from Radio Arts together with our resident radio operator Colin Turner to find out what they have been working on collaboratively during their residential over the last few weeks.
Nylon Thread is supported by Etxepare Basque Institute
