Information of the Artists’ trail that is part of the East Kent Open Houses, coming soon. Take a note of the artists in Deal and surrounding towns and visit the website for more info on timings, events and access within each venue, before travel:
Delayed from 2020, the Three Weavers are returning to Beach Creative in October. Alas, no Private View this year, as we think a lot of people crowded into the two galleries would not be wise, but please visit if you can. As an added inducement the wonderful Toast cafe on the premises has also re-opened, except for Sundays. Lunch plus a viewing, perhaps? Large car park opposite, with those for two supermarkets behind.
Great article and images showing in Kent Online:

Urban Art 2021 – 3rd & 4th July
Due to the continuing uncertainty of COVID restrictions, Brixton’s annual street art fair will again go ‘virtual’ this year on the weekend 3rd & 4th July. However, don’t worry as we plan to be back at our usual venue in the beautiful tree lined Josephine Avenue in 2022. Meantime, please support our exhibitors in 2021 by viewing their galleries and buy some amazing art.
Our Virtual Art Fair
Urban Art is a great opportunity to buy work direct from our many loyal exhibitors and a chance to discover a wealth of creative skills, including Painting, Printmaking, Photography, Mixed Media and Street Art. Exhibitors range from the novice to the established and with prices to match this really is an event for all art lovers, whatever your budget.

We are back!
South East Artists (SEAS) are excited to announce that our Open Art Trail is back for 2021. It has been a regular feature for many years organised by dynamic artists featuring new work ranging from ceramics, photography, printmaking, textiles, sculpture, and painting. It seems a lifetime ago that we last exhibited due to the pandemic, but it is lovely to see galleries and studios open and all the artists are keen to meet you to discuss their new work.
Based in St Margaret’s Bay, River, Walmer and Deal, artists open their studios to the public with group shows at the Angling Club and the Landmark Centre in Deal.
There are a total of 32 artists taking part over two consecutive weekends 19/20 & 26/27 June. The Open Studio trail has become a successful event for both the community and the artists that take part.
The Open Studios catalogue will be available from our launch event ‘Small is Beautiful’ at the Deal Angling Club and the Deal Town Market which takes place on the 5 June. You will be able to meet some of the artists and learn where they will be exhibiting during Open Studios and view some of their postcard size artwork. The catalogue will be available the end of May and includes a map of the art trail and lists all the participating artists.
The art trail widens this year, and you must visit Amanda Thompson in River and David Souter and Maggie Baur in St Margaret’s Bay. Both beautiful areas to visit with some great scenery and their work is even more stunning.
Artists are exhibiting in mini group shows with Chris Birbeck, Caroline Raffan Helen Komatsu, and Kate Baker at 17 Manor Road, Deal CT14 9BT. Their work ranges from textiles, glass fusion, and mosaic. Patricia Barry is exhibiting from her home at Lodge 8, The Chequers, Golf Road CT14 6RG, which is along the Ancient Highway. Just follow signs for the Chequers Kitchen. Her artist friends Mollie Winters and Penny Berkeley will also be showing their work of textiles, needlework, painting, and printmaking.
You can also visit Kaye Walls and Sandra Tracey at 3 Old Gaol, North Barracks, Walmer CT14 7UN. View their indoor and outdoor mosaic, recycled art, and ceramics. With other artists exhibiting from their studios in Deal and the larger venues at the Landmark Centre and the Angling Club it is a true Art Trail. We look forward to seeing you and to enjoy a great summer
