I’m so pleased to be taking part in this year’s South East Open Studios (SEOS) in June. I had such fun last year and I knew I definitely wanted to do it again this year. I met some really interesting people and it was lovely to connect with other artists in the area. Taking out all the furniture in the lounge is worth the effort and it is fun living in an art gallery for 3 weeks.
The SEOS is one of the most established annual arts events in the UK. It is a 17-day event showcasing creative talent all over the South East. It takes place across Kent, East Sussex and the Surrey Borders, from Edenbridge to Ramsgate, Rochester to Hastings … and everywhere in between!
I will be exhibiting a range of paintings including my winterscape series and some lovely new work. I’m also working on some abstracts to shake things up a bit. There will also be a wide selection of my greetings cards.
This year, there will be two new artists at my venue. The wonderful Jan Beesley, who is a Sussex based artist using abstract and expressionist photography to capture her experience of the world around her. The other exhibitor is the lovely Jayne Luscombe, a jewellery maker who uses silver, enamel and accents of gold in her work. I’m really excited that they are joining me at my house.
Lastly, but best of all, I will be selling for charity my sister’s homemade cake and tea/coffee. It should be a great 3 weeks and I do hope you can visit us.
My venue will be open from 11am until 5pm on the following days in June:
Fri 2nd - Sun 4th, Thur 8th - Sun 11th & Fri 16th - Sun 18th.
