Prize winners will be announced during the Fête Picasso 20th July.

Small Art Objects is a fundraising undertaking sponsored by A.I.R. Vallauris and consists of a competition, involving the creation of small art objects, their exhibition and sale. Small art objects can be made from any material, but are restricted in size to 15 cm x 15 cm x 15 x cm (6 inches x 6 inches x 6 inches). Timing for this exercise is to coincide with the Fête Picasso, a popular celebration that takes place annually in Vallauris in honour of its most famous artist in residence. From 1946, and for 10 years, Picasso discovered ceramics with a passion in Vallauris.

Picasso's arrival in Vallauris stimulated an artistic effervescence, prompting the influx of numerous artists and intellectuals at that time such as Aragon, Brassaï, Cocteau and Prévert, who came to visit Picasso in his studio. Corridas as well as Picasso's birthday parties were organized and celebrated in his honour by the town's population. The "Picasso Effect" was equally evident in the development of the arts. Several painters and sculptors, among them Chagall, Matisse and Brauner followed Picasso into studios in Vallauris.

17th May — 21st July 2012 “Free For All” Kaleidoscope Gallery, Sevenoaks.

The exhibition poses the question: “Can work really be created truly automatically, or does the artist eventually have to intervene to make conscious decisions about the work? Does process-based work offer a framework to free the artist from the conscious decision? How can materials and processes available through new media shape or influence work of this type? Could the practice of socially engaging with communities to stimulate participatory work be a new take on the idea of automatically generated work?”

The Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery is a contemporary exhibition space run by Kent County Council to showcase new and experimental work from local artists. The gallery shows quality artwork which hopes to raise the profile of art in West Kent and provide the opportunity for the local community to experience diverse work.
