South East Artists (SEAS) Open Studios 2011 takes place over three consecutive weekends across the Deal area in Kent.
In this sixth year of open studios, artists are expanding as a group and exploring creativity beyond the confines of the studio, into their gardens, the streets, the beach and shop windows.
You can download from here the accompanying guide book detailing the artists opening their doors and welcoming the public, in a convenient pdf format to browse on screen. The actual hard-copy open studios brochures are currently being printed and should be available in a couple of weeks time from the artists, local libraries, tourist information centres and a variety of outlets throughout Deal and beyond.
