Artists Open Houses launches new scheme to encourage serious art buyers on the opening weekend of the festival

Artists Open Houses is a huge success story. Now the UK’s biggest art trail – over 1,500 artists will be exhibiting this year – it remains one of the city’s most popular arts events with art lovers from Brighton and across the UK coming back year after year in ever increasing numbers.

 

For the artists, however, more visitors doesn’t necessarily mean more sales so this year AOH have teamed up with local event organisers Green Room Productions on a new scheme aimed at encouraging serious buyers to visit the festival.

 

They have put together a special package on the opening weekend with

  • Entry in to private views held on the Friday evening
  • Special events throughout the weekend including a curator’s tour of the Royal Pavilion
  • Advice on the 20 most interesting Open Houses to visit
  • An invitation to the ‘Festival House Party – for artists and art lovers’ on the Sunday evening to meet the festival organisers and some of the ‘spotlighted’ artists hand picked by Green Room Productions as the most interesting in this year’s festival
  • Hosting services all weekend

 

Held in a beautiful private house in central Brighton, the Festival House Party will be a luxury ‘Green Room’ for artists, performers, sponsors and VIPs that will include an exhibition of work from the 20 spotlighted artists.

 

Festival Director Judy Stevens commented ‘This is a wonderful idea – not only will guests be hosted all weekend and taken to private views but they will also be able to meet the artists at the festival house party on the Sunday evening’

 

Green Room Productions Director Alasdair Brown added ‘From the Thames Festival’s closing party for the London Olympics to a riverside banquet for the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant to a Festival House Party at this year’s carnival in Salvador, Brazil – we specialise in creating special events that make larger festivals feel intimate and exclusive.
