EXHIBITION: VERSATILITY OF PAPER
In 1953, Northfleet papermaker Bowater invited artists to respond to the versatility of paper for their 1954 calendar. Recreating this call, we received more than 160 requests for vintage paper, and received 66 responses back. These beautiful pieces of work are now on display at the Fourth Portal.

About the event
The Versatility of Paper callout completely surpassed our expectations. We had more than 160 requests for vintage pieces of paper from local people plus people from around the UK and the world.
There were 66 responses received, all beautiful and inventive, some being ingenious.
All the returned responses are on display at the Fourth Portal, Gravesend, until 1st October 2023.
Artist in residence, Dawn Cole and the Fourth Portal wish to thank everyone for getting in touch requesting paper and the kind words, and with a very special thanks to everyone who has sent us a response. It is wonderful.
