Exhibition: Sarah Lake's Paper Cut Sketches

This exhibition showcases Sarah Lake's' intricate paper-cut portraits of wild animals. The selection of work includes her award-winning, Achilles, a Sumatran tiger. This won Sarah a place in Sketch for Survival Wildlife 100 Artists of the Year, 2021. This competition, organised by the conservation charity Explorers Against Extinction, attracts nearly 5000 entries each year.

The judges said of Achilles," this paper cut has such a presence ... amazing given it is created with just bits of paper ... so much skill was involved and a lot of heart to make it shine like this."

Working from her own photographs, Sarah hand-cuts layers of paper to create unique artworks, mounted and framed under glass. The majority of works in her exhibition will be available to buy.

In Westgate Galleria we showcase a diverse selection of contemporary and traditional art and crafts alongside our guest exhibitions. This work is handmade by a large group of Kent-based independent artists, makers and creatives. We also stock prints, greetings cards and postcards.

Westgate Galleria is a large retail gallery and workshop space.  Located in Westgate-on-Sea, in a beautiful part of Thanet. The area is a great destination for a weekend or day trip in all seasons. See here for more detailsincluding travel directions.
