Through My Eyes: An Exhibition by Paul Johnston

Paul Johnston is a Medway based photographer who has received huge acclaim for his contributions to Medway Eyes group exhibitions Look At Medway, Tidal Flow, Sight Unseen and Unframed in the past three years or so. This month, he steps forward to present his first ever solo exhibition at Riverside Country Park. Expect the River Medway to be a feature, but also look out for early mornings, singular takes on familiar subjects and a wry underlying humour in Paul’s work.

The exhibition is free and runs from Sunday 28th August to Saturday 10th September. You can preview the exhibition on the afternoon of Saturday 27th August from 1pm, when Paul and the team will be having lunch in the picnic/playground area.

Sight Unseen Exhibition

Following the success of the Tidal Flow exhibition of 2009, Medway Eyes returns to the Riverside Country Park in Gillingham in June with a new photographic exhibition that accentuates the unseen and provides a fresh take on the familiar.

Sight Unseen runs for three weeks and opens with a family friendly day of two halves; the exhibition opening and a picnic at the Riverside Country Park followed by live music at the Barge until teatime.

We hope to see you there.

Retro Post #5: May 2009 – Tidal Flow

Tidal Flow was the second collaborative exhibition from Medway Eyes. Initially invited to the Riverside Country Park for two weeks, the Tidal Flow exhibition proved so popular that it was extended. Twice. The opening was more family orientated than is usual for a photography exhibition, and we swapped our berets and cigarette holders for a picnic and some champagne in a plastic pint pot (courtesy of Mukkjoy).
The exhibition itself was inspired by the river. All photographs were taken along the Medway from Allington Lock, downstream as far as the mouth of the Medway at Garrison point, and east along the Swale, past Faversham Creek and as far as Seasalter.

You can see slideshows of the whole exhibition and the accompanying gig at the Barge on our website.
