I like the idea that you can draw on anything and call it art, or draw with anything and call it art. So when I heard about a hotel in Margate that has preserved and displayed napkins turned into artworks I felt my art antenna tingle.
Guests are invited to turn hotel napkins into works of art with the chance to have the artworks added to the gallery of napkins. There are currently 92 decorated napkins on display.
Tracey Emin, apparently, has promised to add a napkin at some point. I’ll make the same promise, should I ever find myself in Margate and staying at the Walpole Bay Hotel.
