You’re invited to attend the opening exhibition for ‘A Castle In England’ at Scotney Castle.

The exhibition, in partnership with National Trust, Arts Council England, Nobrow, Jamie Rhodes and Mr Four Fingers, will take place at Scotney Castle from the 1st April to 23rd April 2017.

The exhibition will feature;

  • Original artwork from five of the artists involved in the graphic novel
  • Alternative posters and artwork from Mr Four Fingers and supporting artists
  • And will include artefacts and relics from Scotney Castles’ illustrious history – dating from 1500’s up and until 1900’s.

VISIT SCOTNEY CASTLE TO SEE THE EXHIBITION!

About the art project:

A Castle in England is an Arts Council England supported literature project collaboration between writer Jamie Rhodes(Dead Men’s Teeth, 2014) and the National Trust. Jamie will spend three months as Writer in Residence at the National Trust’s Scotney Castle in Kent, working with the castle archivists to find unusual archive material around which to create 5 short graphic fiction scripts. The scripts will be illustrated by experienced comic and graphic novel artists Becky Palmer, Isabel Greenberg, Briony May Smith, William Exley, and Isaac Lenkiewic, and be published by Nobrow Press in early 2017.

With the stories well underway, Mr Four Fingers art duo – the team doing my digital market, gallery exhibition, and non-sequential art – came for a visit to the castle!

The end of project exhibition will feature the original archive items from the castle that have inspired the stories, alongside blown up art prints of key panels, reveals and splashes from the finished book.
