Now in its twelfth year, running over three weekends from 29 November to 14 December, Artists Open Houses is a great way to discover the diversity of creative talent in our city. At the same time you can chat to the artists and view some of Brighton’s most interesting homes, while enjoying minced pies and mulled wines in many of them. They are all over Brighton and Hove and spread out to Rottingdean, Saltdean and the village of Ditchling.
Close to the West Hill area, The Whistler’s favourite artist and music teacher, Clare Harms, will once again be selling her charming paintings, prints and cards at 90 Wick Hall, Furze Hill, together with fellow artists. Opening her flat for the first time at 29 Compton Avenue, Amalia Sanchez de la Blanca has invited a fantastic group of artists and designers to join her selling hand-painted furniture, stationery, jewellery.
