SEAS Open Studios 2021 applications:

Our Art Trail runs in Deal, Walmer, St Margaret’s, River and surrounding villages. Artists welcome the public to view their work over two compulsory weekends; this year Sat 19th–Sun 20th June and Sat 26th–Sun 27th June, open from 10-5pm at all venues. We have booked three group venues: the Astor, the Angling Club and the Cleary Room at the Landmark. Fees are provisional, some have increased, others are waiting for confirmation. If final costs are lower, refunds will be made. The artist entry fee for the two weekends
varies, depending on venue (entry for visitors must be free). NOTE: Due to Covid-19, we can’t be sure the event will go ahead. Decisions on publicity will be taken over the next few months. If the event is cancelled after early May, the base fee (£65) will not be refundable. The basic fee covers publicity.

Fee includes entry to Small is Beautiful show at St George’s Hall on 5th June:
Home/studio £65
Angling Club £95
Astor Theatre £115
Landmark £147.50
Guests: Fee with a name only brochure entry is the above figure less £45. Examples: Guest in home studio £20; Guest at Angling Club £50. Compulsory SEAS membership fee in addition.
The smooth running of our events relies on participants contributing, e.g. delivery and collection of brochures, signage, social media promotions and sharing artists trail information with visitors. Please use the form below or the email version to complete relevant sections, including payment, as appropriate, and return as soon as possible and no later than 28th February.

SEAS Open Studios 2020

It is with great regret that we have made the decision to cancel OPEN STUDIOS 2020 and its launch event SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL for the safety and well-being of our artists and the visiting public.

OS was planned for the last two weekends of June but given the uncertainty surrounding easing of lockdown and the continuing risks of contagion, we feel we cannot commit to going ahead with these events.

We remain positive and hope our planned autumn and winter events will take place. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram where we will showcase our work and keep you informed of future developments and events.

We looked forward to seeing you soon at one of our events. Stay healthy and best wishes from all of our artists.

East Kent Artists’ Open Houses

Welcome to East Kent Artists’ Open Houses 2019 or EKOH for short. Now in its 19th year, EKOH has gone from strength to strength with more artists than ever, over 200 artists spread over 70 houses and studios. We are also delighted to include Margate, Cliftonville and Deal and hope to extend our range around Kent’s Creative Coast.

The artists’ trail gives the public a personal insight into how an artist works within their specialised field. It opens up a wealth of information and interest to pave the way for making new contacts and discovering opportunities for anyone interested in taking up new fields of creativity. The trail is your chance to visit artists in their homes, to speak to them in person about their work and to find out what is happening in your local area. This is a rare opportunity to experience a diverse array of high quality work in a relaxed setting; with so many venues to choose from there should be something for everyone. So, plan your trip and prepare to be inspired and surprised.
All houses are open weekends during the festival

12th/13th, 19th/20th, 26th/27th October 2019 – 11am – 5pm (unless stated)
