Small is Beautiful 

This has become the regular launch event for Open Studios. Come and meet the artists at St George’s Parish Hall in the High Street Deal and for the first time this year the event will run over two days. It’s a great opportunity to chat to the artists, learn where they will be on the Open Studio Trail, and pick-up the OS catalogue. The opening weekend is the Queen’s Platinum Celebration and Deal will be an exciting place to spend your long weekend. As previous years all the artwork is original and sells for £25. Entry is free and there is plenty of parking within the town and seafront.

Various venues 


Pie Factory 

South East Artists return to one of their favourite venues. Eight artists; Kate Baker, Susan Carlyle, Martin Cherry, Pam Cutler, Dominic Harper, Neil Pettie, Vivian Riches and Peter Webb will be exhibiting work created in the last twelve months during a period when most people have struggled with the confines of a world pandemic.  

Art breathes new life into us during periods of confinement, depression, and self-doubt that we experience in difficult times. Art is an escape, although it’s not a permanent one, it is a much needed one that we can leave and return to. 

Entry Free. Disabled access.
