SEAS Open Studios 2016

SEAS Open Studios 2016

Explore. Discover. Enjoy.

During six days this Summer artists and craft makers from SEAs, Deal’s vibrant artist collective, extend a unique invitation to the public. As part of Deal’s Festival of Music & the Arts, artists transform their homes, studios and gardens into temporary galleries for the 2016 Open Studios & Art Trail. The town’s Astor Theatre is also the venue for a number of participating artists.

SEAs artists embrace a rich diversity of genres, media, techniques and themes. This year’s art trail, featuring established artists and newcomers, offers an exclusive glimpse into the artist’s world, and a chance to discover unique works of art and craft that you won’t find elsewhere.

SEAs is an artist-led organisation that seeks to create opportunities for its members to exhibit their work and to increase public engagement with the visual arts locally. The SEAs Open Studios & Art Trail in Deal and its neighbourhoods uncovers a rich seam of creative energy in one of Kent’s most cosmopolitan, welcoming and popular coastal towns.

For full artist listings, times & venues please see the SEAs Open Studio & Art Trail brochure.
