As the summer season has officially started, the Arcane Publishing/Matt ArtPix team is getting ready for what we hope will be a fruitful few months!
If you find yourself in West Bay, Dorset, come and see us on the second floor of The Customs House (next to the East Beach car park, where the now famous Broadchurch cliffs are located!)
We have already announced an event for June: Alice's Wicked Tea Party, a local, grassroots alternative music festival which will be taking place a short drive from the beautiful Corfe Castle.
More to announce!
Arcane and Matt ArtPix are delighted to announce our first event of 2017 in our new home of Dorset!
Find us at:
Alice's Wicked Tea Party - 2nd and 3rd June 2017
At Knolle Farm, Soldiers Road, Wareham, Dorset
A grassroots music festival now in its third year, AWTP is moving to a bigger new venue in the Dorset countryside, next door to the famously beautiful Corfe Castle!
It features a wide variety of acts including the fantastic Black Volition who played our first event in London in February 2016!
Arcane and Matt Artpix will bring a great choice of carefully picked art, books, vinyls and more!

More news soon!
Things have been really hectic here at Arcane/ArtPix HQ after our move and sadly, Miss Gish hasn't had any time to spend on The Right Place draft...
Following up on Miss Gish's previous blog about the fantastic stuff on our doorsteps (read it HERE) - including St George's church and its intriguing churchyard, here is a great new video from local band The Dolmen shot near our house at St George's church and the Tout Quarry Sculpture Park!
Portland is the perfect backdrop for music videos and promotional shoots - with its dramatic coastline, rich cultural heritage, intriguing and often uncompromising architecture... The island and the county of Dorset in general is the inspiration for so many artists and writers...
We do feel at home, here!
We are slowly settling down into our new HQ.
Still loads to do!
But when it all gets too much inside with all the boxes, we can nip out and within 2mn, we are on Chesil Beach.
Perfect for inspiration!
There will be some Arcane Publishing and MattArtPix news in March!
Watch this space!
This colourful little chap adorns the entrance to the new Arcane Publishing/Matt ArtPix towers in Dorset! Yes, we have finally moved!
We still have a lot of things to sort out but we hope to be able to start telling you more about our future plans.
We are now only 20mn away (by car) from Abbotsbury and St Catherine's chapel where Miss Gish's third novel/work -in-progress is set.
We will update you on our progress and future plans and blog about the stunning county of Dorset!
Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix will be back in January 2017 with, we hope, loads of news about our move to Dorset, future events and projects.
See you next year!
Arcane Publishing is about to move their HQ to Dorset and we've had a few setbacks which have been taking all our time...
We have now been told that we would not complete before the Christmas break as planned! We cannot wait to move as we have loads of plans and projects we want to get started from our new Dorset base!
In the meantime, we're thrilled to announce that Arcane Publishing designer Matt ArtPix has had the honour of designing the poster for the fabulous Jo Quail's forthcoming London shows. And of course, we're going to one of them, so expect a blog about it at some point on Miss Gish's website!
Read Matt's blog about it HERE.
Get tickets for the Saturday show (Sunday is sold out!) HERE.
Watch Jo's new video - a live recording in Gdansk with Cappella Gedanensis, conducted by Jos Pijnappel.
A few weeks back, we had posted a blog about the new items which would soon stock our shelves at The Customs House in West Bay, and now we can show them to you in situ!
We are a bit quiet these days but we can assure you that a lot is happening behind the scenes at Arcane Towers, and we really, really hope to have some fab news for you soon! We've had a great summer at The Customs House and we hope to be able to expand and improve our little venture in 2017.
In the meantime, the Arcane/Artpix team has been out and about in London and a few arty blogs are on their way this week over on Miss Gish's website, so go and have a looksie at some point this week!
