Thanet & Beyond Photographic Exhibition 2018


“A group of local photographers are back for the forth installment of their group exhibition at New Kent Art Gallery in Broadstairs on the 11th September. Views and vistas from across Thanet and beyond will be taking centre stage at the gallery for 2 weeks and will include everything from classic seascapes to the natural world and townscapes.

The Big Up Thanet group was formed on Facebook by Mel Chennell in response to the number of photographers who would meet on the beach at dawn and capture the amazing Thanet sunrises. The group quickly became a runaway success and the perfect way to share experiences and photographic results. During 2016 they put on their first ever group exhibition which was a huge success and since then they have held two further shows, as well as honed their skills. Many of the photographers have gone on to sell work more widely in other galleries and online and some have developed this further to produce fantastic minimal works of art that focus of London as well as Thanet views.”

We will also be hosting a meet and greet on the 15th September from 2.30pm to 5pm. Come and have a free tipple and snacks and have a chat with the photographers.xx
