Artists Open Houses Xmas festival announce  festival and registration dates.

THE Artists Open Houses Festival in Brighton, Hove and beyond is the largest event of its kind in the UK, with approximately 200 houses and studio spaces opening their doors to the public during the May festival exhibiting the work of over 1,200 artists. More artists than ever took part in the 2018 May Festival.

Registration for artists and makers wishing to take part in the festival will open on August 22 and close in early October.

The Artists Open Houses Xmas Festival 2018 will run over the weekends:

♦ November 24 and 25
♦ December 1 and 2
♦ December 8 and 9

Houses may open for all or a selection of these dates.

Artist Open Houses (AOH) help artists connect with audiences in self-curated, non-traditional art spaces. This usually means visiting artists’ own homes, offering festival-goers an exclusive snapshot of how creatives live in this vibrant and creative city.

Anyone living in the 01273 telephone area can take part in the Artists Open Houses (AOH) festival as an Open House venue. Registration costs can be shared by all the artists exhibiting in one venue, meaning that taking part in the festival as a venue can be affordable for everyone.

Those wishing to take part in the festival as an artist rather than as a venue (including those living outside of the 01273 telephone area) can take part as a guest artist, exhibiting their work in someone else’s Open House.

Judy Stevens, Artists Open Houses Festival Director says: “Artists Open Houses are a great and affordable way for artists to exhibit their work, whether established artists or those just setting out on their careers. Artists Open Houses connect artists and makers with an audience of art-lovers, buyers and industry professionals – and is also fun to take part in, exhibiting with your friends in your own home.”
