The first time Neptune Hove has sponsored the festival, Neptune Hove is a beautiful interiors store set on Kingsway in Hove, selling everything from home accessories to sofas and armchairs, kitchens and lighting to garden furniture.
Judy Stevens, Festival Director of Artists Open Houses festival says, “We are thrilled to welcome on board the team at Neptune in Hove as our headline sponsor for 2018. Their creative sensibility makes them a perfect fit for the festival.”
Janette Lewis, Manager of Neptune Hove says, “We are absolutely delighted to sponsor Artists Open Houses this year. We believe that the ethos of the festival is very much in keeping with that of our own; here at Neptune Hove we aim to offer all our clients a unique visitor experience once they step foot in our showroom. Each one of our stunning products have been designed with a story in mind; from our accessories and paint colours right through to our furniture and in-frame kitchens. Much like the artwork on show at the AOH festival.”
The Artists Open Houses Festival in Brighton, Hove and beyond is the largest event of its kind in the UK, with approximately 200 houses and studio spaces opening their doors to the public across 4 weekends in May, starting Saturday 5th May. Last year over 200,000 people visited the festival.
The festival offers the chance to buy artworks directly from the artists and makers themselves. There is a hugely diverse selection of artworks on show, from original paintings, prints, graffiti arts, ceramics and textiles to photography, sculpture, crafts, jewellery and many other media.
Artist Open Houses (AOH) helps artists connect with audiences in self-curated, non-traditional art spaces. This usually means visiting artists’ own homes, offering festival-goers an exclusive snapshot of how creatives live in this vibrant and creative city. From beautiful Regency-style properties to quirky and colourful cottages, many of the houses boast stunning gardens creatively landscaped by their owners.

About Artists Open Houses
Brighton and Hove Artist Open Houses, the originator of the Open House movement, date back to 1981 when an artist from the Fiveways area of Brighton, Ned Hoskins opened his house to the public to view his work, and that of a group of friends. Other artists in the area followed suit to form the Fiveways Artist Group. In a city full of creatives, the idea proved popular and soon Artist Open Houses sprung up all over the city.
The Artists Open Houses festival is now the largest event of its kind in the UK. Around 200 houses and studio spaces across the city open their doors for the main festival in May and around 60 open during the Christmas festival. Over 1500 artists and makers share their work and homes each year.
