Thank You? A Christmas Swap Shop
Kaleidoscope Gallery, Sevenoaks Library, Buckhurst Lane, Sevenoaks, TN13 1LQ
Show open 20 December 2012 – 5 January 2013
Swaps between 11 am and 2 pm on Saturdays December 22, 29, and January 5
If you have ever received a present you didn’t really want, you don’t have to shove it in the loft to gather dust – here is a chance to do something with it.
Thank You? will run over Christmas and New Year 2012/13 as a festive flop swap shop for unwanted gifts. It is an opportunity to swap that unloved vase, jumper or CD for the biscuit tin, tiara or woolly hat you have always wanted.
But Thank you? is more than just a swap shop. It’s an event that will give the audience the opportunity to reflect on gift giving and receiving. Visitors will be invited to make their own contribution and there is a gift-wrapping station for any swapped items. If you don’t want to swap you can still contribute your stories for the tree.
Thank You? is presented by the Sevenoaks Visual Artists Forum; a group of artists based in the area who meet at the Kaleidoscope once a month.
