Wanted! Artists and Makers

Last call for entries for Brighton and Hove’s Artist Open Houses Festival 2014.

Open HousesThe deadline for registration for Brighton and Hove’s Artist Open House Festival 2014 is fast approaching. Any artists and makers wishing to exhibit at this year’s Artist Open Houses have until February 5 to register their venue (the deadline for normal/lower entry rate closes on January 28).

Anyone can take part in the festival – whether you are a well-established artist or maker or just starting out, a school or college student or marginalised artist. Painters, print makers, graffiti artists, textile artists, furniture makers, film makers, photographers, sculptors, crafts and jewellery makers are all welcome! The Artist Open Houses offer the chance to sell your artworks directly to the public.

To open your own house you need to be within the 01273 telephone code area. If you are a guest artist in someone else’s house, you can live outside Brighton. If you don’t have a house then you can use the listings service available on the AOH website to match artists with houses.

Judy Stevens, Festival Director, says: “The Artist Open House Festival is calling out to all artists and makers, however established you are, to register for the 2014 festival. Let’s make it the biggest and best festival yet!”

The 2014 Artist Open Houses festival will take place in Brighton, Hove and beyond over the four weekends of May 2014. The largest event of its kind in the UK, the Artist Open Houses Festival will see over 225 houses and studio spaces across the city opening their doors to exhibit the work of 1200 artists and makers.

Any artist or maker who takes part in the Artist Open Houses will also be eligible to submit work for The Open Houses Open Exhibition 2014, a curated open submissions exhibition showcasing some of the most exciting work from the festival. The Open Exhibition will be shown in the Regency Town House upstairs Drawing Room.

All artists exhibiting in the Artists Open Houses festival are invited to submit works, which this year should respond to the Open Houses Open Exhibition @RTH theme of ‘Translations’. A prize of £300 will be awarded to the Artist of the Year, who will also become next year’s Artist Open House brochure cover artist and be offered an exhibition at The Old Market in Hove during next year’s festival.
