6-29 MAY 2017 AOH 2017 Headline Sponsor Artists Open Houses is delighted to welcome Handmade at Amazon as our new Headline Sponsor in 2017. “Handmade at Amazon is proud to be supporting local Artists and Artisans through our sponsorship of Artist Open Houses, which is a fantastic showcase of British crafts and entrepreneurship.” Mike Miller, Worldwide Director of Handmade at Amazon. Handmade at Amazon will be offering a Best Newcomer Award to an artist or maker new to Artists Open Houses this year. Over four weekends in May, artists open their doors to offer work from over 1,200 artists, exhibiting in more than 180 venues across the city of Brighton, Hove and beyond. The Open Houses are grouped in local trails, each with their own unique character, from the fishermen’s houses of Hanover, Regency houses of Brunswick, to the urban warehouse spaces of the North Laine and cottages of the South Downs village of Ditchling. Visiting Open Houses offers the chance to meet the artists and to buy work directly from them. The hugely diverse range of artwork on show includes original paintings, prints, graffiti arts, ceramics and textiles, as well as photography, sculpture, crafts, jewellery and many other media. The Artists Open Houses is an inclusive open-to-all event, welcoming participation from all areas of the community, including community groups, marginalized, school and college student artists. Visiting local artists in their homes and studios is an unmissable part of the Brighton festivals’ season. Many Open Houses also offer the opportunity to get involved, providing workshops and events for both adults and children. Entry to the houses is free. With homemade tea and cake on offer too, the Artists Open Houses are a very special weekend treat.

Pete Fraser was a member of the Beyond the Level group and with his partner Frances Bloomfield hosted a very popular open house at 30 Gerard Street for several years. Pete was a great host, always up for a chat about his own meticulous, sharp, witty and experimental mixed media work. He was also incredibly supportive of Frances's work and career in a completely selfless way. Visitors would always comment on the high quality presentation of the show and this was a result of Pete’s consummate professionalism. He recognised that special quality the open houses have, and would put visitors at ease by being willing to talk about all the art work on display as well as sharing cuttings from plants in the garden, discussing books and music and promoting our shared ideals and values. His valuable contribution to this community will be greatly missed. 13
