Karen Crosby’s exhibition Traces presents a series of atmospheric images documenting the site-specific projections she installed on Sittingbourne High Street in 2015.  By projecting found images from old postcards of locations in Sittingbourne, back onto the surface of their present day location the images served as an ephemeral connection between the past and present. Revealing traces of people from the past as ghostly figures in doorways, alleyways and walls.

The Stairwell Gallery is a platform for local artists, who have been supported by Ideas Test, to showcase their work as part of a curated programme of monthly exhibitions opening on the first Saturday of every month. A complementary series of talks and workshops open to all provides an opportunity for both artist and audience to gain a greater understanding of the work.
