Over four weekends in May, artists open their doors to offer work from over 1,200 artists, exhibiting in more than 180 venues across the city of Brighton, Hove and beyond.
The Open Houses are grouped in local trails, each with their own unique character, from the fishermen’s houses of Hanover, Regency houses of Brunswick, to the urban warehouse spaces of the North Laine and cottages of the South Downs village of Ditchling.
Visiting Open Houses offers the chance to meet the artists and to buy work directly from them. The hugely diverse range of artwork on show includes original paintings, prints, graffiti arts, ceramics and textiles, as well as photography, sculpture, crafts, jewellery and many other media.
The Artists Open Houses is an inclusive open-to-all event, welcoming participation from all areas of the community, including community groups, marginalised, school and college student artists.
