Over four weekends in May, alongside Brighton Festival, over 1,200 artists open their doors to the public. The exhibitions are grouped into local trails with over 180 venues over Brighton, Hove and beyond. We are lucky to have one of the most vibrant and popular trails right on our doorstep.
The 'Seven Dials Trail' has expanded year by year with this year's trail having 19 venues all within easy walking distance to each other. The hugely diverse range of artwork on show includes original paintings, prints, cards, ceramics and textiles as well as photography, sculpture, crafts, jewellery and many other media. By visiting local artists in their homes and studios you have the chance to meet and chat - and to buy work directly from them.
It’s a welcoming all-inclusive experience, entry to the houses is free and often there is tea and cake on offer too. If you’ve never been, this is a great chance to see how it works. Each venue is unique, there is no obligation to buy but obviously if you do you are supporting hard working artists and our local economy. Come and be inspired, get something special or simply visit and enjoy the event.
We are venue 12 in the Seven Dials trail - 'The Family Line', at 13 Addison Road Hove BN3 1TQ. Open every weekend in May, 11am - 6pm.
