Scotch & Ginger Tacos
Nov
3
to Dec 2

Scotch & Ginger Tacos

We are so excited to welcome the duo, ‘Scotch + Ginger’ otherwise known as Margates wonderful Lisa Jayne Harris & Duncan to Urchin for the whole of November!

TACOS! Arguably the best communal food and a bloody good challenge for us to pair wines to.

Pickled Cod tacos, chicharrones, mezcal drunken beans, seitan tacos, braised pork taco, fish ‘n’ chip taco, salsa macha for days and the very special Walpole bay rice featuring homemade sea salt and dehydrated seaweed (it’s out of this world), apple crumble taco and much more....

“A food writer and a chef with numerous supper clubs and large-scale events under their belt, they're passionate about good food and good times. Scotch might not always wear a kilt, but Ginger is always ginger.

Based in Margate, we're a supper club where you can expect all the delight of a restaurant tasting menu, but with the relaxed, pass-me-the-wine feeling of dinner with friends (plus plenty of second helpings).” Scotch + Ginger

As before, Food will be served Wed-Sun and we will be taking bookings.

Paired wonderfully with our wines, leaning towards the Alsace.

Sat 3rd November - Sun 2nd Dec

Reo Jewels & Charlotte Edey Summer Exhibition
Aug
3
to Sep 30

Reo Jewels & Charlotte Edey Summer Exhibition

WHAT:

Our artists for August & September are Reo Jewels (Aug only) & Charlotte Edey....

Reo Jewels new collection entitled 'Margate 2018' is inspired by Rebecca's move to the Kentish coastal town. Forever inspired by the natural world and days spent beach combing the shores of Margate, this new collection depicts seaside objects found along Thanets coastline and cast into precious jewels. Items such as shells, starfish and crab claws can be found amongst her work which is all cast in sterling silver and plated in 18ct yellow gold. Gems of the Sea such as Opals and Pearls are also used to reflect this theme. 

https://www.reojewels.com/

Exhibiting alongside is Charlotte Edey. An artist & illustrator working across print, tapestries and ceramics. Softly surreal, the themes of identity and balance are explored within fluid and impossible spaces. Drawing on modernist architecture, afrofuturism and vastly arid landscapes, the scenes are punctuated with touches of lush, organic idyll and miniature figures. This use of scale and visual contrasts explores the delicate and precarious nature of equilibrium.

Her work has been exhibited across the UK at venues including The Oxo Tower & The Arnolfini alongside galleries across the USA, Russia and Europe. Charlotte was showcased as part of the Great Women Artists: Women on Instagram exhibition at Mother London and selected for the Artist of The Day 2018 exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Mayfair. Her work has been featured in Creative Review, Vanity Fair, It’s Nice That, i-D magazine, Dazed, AnOther Magazine, Country&Townhouse, Hunger and London Evening Standard.

WHEN:

FRIDAY AUGUST 3RD - SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 2ND

EXHIBITION LAUNCH: FRIDAY 3RD AUGUST 6-10PM (all welcome)

'By the Light of a Silvery Moon' - Jon Spencer & Alessandro Cripsta exhibition
Jul
6
to Jul 29

'By the Light of a Silvery Moon' - Jon Spencer & Alessandro Cripsta exhibition

'By the Light of a Silvery Moon' is an exhibition of artwork by both Jon Spencer & Alessandro Cripsta. With an air of mystical, spiritual, historical and nostalgic ghostliness.

"Alessandro Cripsta is an Illustrator and Graphic Artist. He creates suspended images that echo the collective unconscious, taking inspiration from ancient symbols and metaphysical paintings. Wide horizons where long shadows fall."

Jon Spencer’s work is concerned with ideas of the layering of history; physically, emotionally and in terms of memories. He looks to tease out stories hidden in the fabric and collective memory of our urban environment, retelling them and prompting the viewer to look at their surrounds anew. For this show at Urchin, Jon is showing a set of his Bandstand Series. These layered, painterly images are created through a systematic process which plays on the symmetrical form of the Bandstands. Their ethereal nature creates a tangible sense of the passage of time, with contemporary figures appearing as ghosts of their Victorian or Edwardian forebears. Here we see the bandstands absorbing and reflecting the changes in their surroundings, whether as active centres of attention, or as dis-used and perhaps mis-used relics of the past.

“Jon Spencer has created photographs that are ethereal, at once very specific and yet so universal that the connection with the viewer is multifarious. The bandstands are indeed “silent sentinels”, but they also call out ever so majestically.” - Debra Klomp Ching, The Klompching Gallery, New York, writing in Troika Editions

Jon will also be showing a few pieces from his new work, By the Light of a Silvery Moon. Here original black & white postcards of traditional English seaside resorts are inter-inlaid with bejewelled & saturated versions of the same image created by the commercial retoucher's brush a few years distant. We jump between a straightforward day time view and one where windows glow, festoons light up or are invented and more often than not a silvery moon appears in the sky.

Sunday service - JAKL live at Urchin Wines

What:

Lovely local musician JAKL will be kicking off Sunday service with an acoustic performance of his upcoming album. Live music in a wine shop on a Sunday...

Margate based artist JAKL burst onto the scene as one of Glastonbury's emerging talents in 2016. His ethereal and emotionally raw music lead to several sold-out headline shows and radio support. After releasing 'Shadows' and touring Europe with Air Traffic, he ended last year by recording a live album at Hackney's Paper Dress Vintage. 

Born into a family of musicians, his influences range from John Martyn, Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley to the music of his opera singing father.  He has secured national radio airplay from a Huw Stephens session to Jo Good (XFM), BBC Introducing and BBC 6 Music. The upcoming album is to be released by Lookout Mountain Records in April.
