Faversham painter artist Derek Cox to show his work at the Fleur de Lys

The exhibition will feature paintings of boats, barges, coastal craft, ships and other vessels with a strong connection with Faversham.

The show is part of a long-term project to bring together information about the nearly 4,000 vessels that have been, and those that continue to be, directly connected with Faversham. 

This includes those either registered at Faversham or built or repaired in the town, or were owned or captained by Faversham people.

The show is part of a long-term project to bring together information about the vessels connected with the town, and Derek intends to publish a series of illustrated books and a DVD.
