Artists are being invited to submit their work for this year’s SeaART 2010, which will go on display in Ramsgate in August.

The theme to this year’s exhibition is “marine life” and the “coastal and marine environment”, with the successful submissions going on display from Friday 13 August until Wednesday 25 August. The event will be launched at the Belgian Café on Friday 13 August.

Organised by the Thanet Coast Project, SeaART is now into its seventh year and the project are looking for all types of new exhibits of contemporary visual artwork, sculptures, installations and photographs.

The project is working with Mike Samson this year and the main focus of the exhibition will be at the Belgian Café, Harbour Parade, Ramsgate, with smaller exhibits held at other venues. There is no cost for artists to exhibit and artists can submit up to three pieces of work.

As part of SeaART 2010, there are SeaART workshops aimed at children aged four to 14 years old, where participants can create marine masterpieces out of plaster of Paris, and fish out of willow. These take place in the Thanet Coast Project marquee over the weekend of the Monster Bass Festival on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 August – just drop in and get creative! These workshops are run with support from the Big Lottery Fund.

Cllr. Martin Wise, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, said: “SeaART has been running successfully for a number of years now and aims to promote the wealth of work inspired by our coast and marine environment. We want to promote local artists who live or work along our beautiful coastline.”

Submissions have to be in by Monday 9 August and can be made either by e-mail to or by post to the Thanet Coast Project, Thanet District Council, PO Box 9, Cecil Street, Margate, CT9 1XZ. For more information, visit
