‘Born and raised in Margate local artist Sian Morgan has long had an affinity and love of Thanet’s beautiful coastline. In her exhibition she will be highlighting one of the aspects that most fascinates her. The wind shelter. Many of these shelters which were constructed in Victorian times have been restored yet some are in poor repair. These structures of Thanet’s past reflect its bygone era of prosperity, its decline and hopeful rise. How many stories could they tell if they could speak? How many firsts have they seen? A first kiss, cigarette or beer. The changing of sensibilities and attitudes. Before mobile phones they were a focal and meeting point along our coast for many. Sian hopes her exhibition will make you reflect and remember some of your memories of these beautiful structures’.
This series of sensitively painted images are titled ‘Familiar’
Natasha Hill is the face behind the Cult Vintage Lens. She has always has a passion for Photography and the story behind the image.
For Natasha, this ethos epitomises what photography is about: it is to tell a story or to convey an atmosphere that can spark a love and an interest in the viewer(s) for generations to come.
Furthermore, she wants to question, and stir debate. This series of work is titled ‘A Portrait of us’
Both artists studied, although a decade apart, at The Kent Institute of Art and Design Rochester and have had successful careers as Visual Merchandisers juxtaposed to their lives as Painter and Photographer.
