What is Artists Open Houses?
Twice a year artists and makers open their houses and studios, providing art lovers the chance to browse and buy original artwork direct from the artist. With a focus on quality and value for money, the Artists Open Houses festival aims to bring a dynamic mix of arts and crafts to the widest possible audience, providing visitors and viewers with engaging and inspiring experiences.
Visitors can expect to see a wide range of art including jewellery, ceramics and textiles, paintings, sculpture, printmaking, photography and many other media whilst also having the opportunity to chat directly with the artists. The Artists Open Houses festival is free for visitors and open to everyone.
The twice yearly festival runs during the Brighton Festival in May and in the run up to Christmas in December.
The 2013 Christmas Artists Open Houses Event will run for the last weekend of November and first two weekends of December, at venues throughout the city.
