I am thrilled to be taking part in the Brighton Artists’ Open Houses, this May, for the 3rd year running. Each year, hundreds of artists and makers open their houses, all across the city. I’m very lucky to be invited back to The Coal Hole, the wonderful and stylish home of 3D relief artist, Georgina Smith, set up in the hills of Hanover, just behind the Phoenix Studios.
I love being in the Open Houses. It is great to work alongside other artists and be part of a collection of work that I am proud to be a part. What I love the most is meeting people and talking about art and Brighton and anything else that pops up. The thing that I find hardest about being an artist is there is a lot of time spent on my own and some people would probably describe me as a chatterbox so this is a great opportunity for me to talk to visitors get a feeling about my new collection of work and hear about all the exciting things happening in Brighton.
In May, we have the Brighton Festival, the Brighton Fridge, The Great Escape, The Funk Soul Weekend, to name a few. So, if you are ever thinking that you would like to visit the city, May is most definitely the month to enjoy all the fun this vibrant place has to offer. I can’t blooming wait!!
I will be invigilating on Saturday, 18th of May so please pop in and say hello and have some cake. All money raised from cake and coffee sales will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Other artists exhibiting at The Coal Hole include: Georgina Smith, Hannah Cole, Alex O’Reilly, Suzi Lowe, Tiny Scenic, Sophie Molyneux, Curvalinea, Pinki Jones, Ulrika Jarl, Underdog, and Little Button Diaries.
