Storytellers is a captivating group exhibition that celebrates the profound connection between art and storytelling.

Storytellers is a captivating group exhibition that celebrates the profound connection between art and storytelling.

Through the works of 23 Kent based contemporary artists across various disciplines, Storytellers explores the idea that artworks convey narratives, trigger emotions and inspire discussions. Stories possess the remarkable ability to forge emotional connections and impact people’s perceptions of the world. While the visual appeal of artworks is undoubtedly important in its own right, we need to recognise that each piece often contributes to a larger narrative.

Artists who contribute their talents to this exhibition include Brian Aris, David Begbie, Steve Bloom, Chris Blunkell, Antony Bream, Catman, Billy Childish, James-Lee Duffy, Joel Ely, Caroline Forbes, Louise Giblin, David Hayward, Brook Hobbins, Jill W. Holder, Cas Holmes, LUAP, Stephen Melton, Rod McIntosh, Tracie Peisley, Perou, Hugh Ribbans, Mbeke Waseme, Charles Williams.

“Storytellers” invites visitors to delve into the diverse narratives embedded within each artwork. These narratives may find their roots in personal experiences or draw inspiration from global events, but artists all share a common aspiration: to translate their perspectives of the world into creative expressions. The exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to access these narratives not only through written descriptions but also through audio (accessible using personal devices to scan QR codes). The audio offers an intimate glimpse into the thoughts, emotions, and inspirations that fueled the artists’ works.

This immersive experience allows visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the artists’ intentions and the stories they want to share.
