April and Tim run AT Open House as part of the Brighton festival’s Artists Open Houses. I visited this awesome Open House last year, and what a merry time was had.
This year, it wasn’t only me who got to pop along, the whole flippin’ DIGITAL bungalow family trundled across! April and Tim had the whole gang wandering around their house, scrutinising the artwork, drinking coffee and devouring their (amazingly gorgeous) cake.
This year they have excelled themselves, and there was nothing short of an abundance of truly fabulous art to look at, admire and – most importantly – buy!
As usual the lovely Tim greeted us with smiles and loveliness as he manned the helm front-of-house.
We aslo had the pleasure of meeting wonderful artist Claire Scully in the living room as we wandered about. Of her art Claire told me: “My work displays a mix of strange utopian worlds and parallel universes with juxtapositions of the unexpected, playing with scale and narrative.” Well, we certainly agree – we love a bit of the unexpected.
As in previous years, the amazing Delicious Industries‘ founder and Director Judith Wilding was on board to help; it’s always great to have a chat and admire (aka oggle at and eat) the wonderful cakes she brings to the ATOH table. Seriously, this woman can bake!
Not only can Judith bake, but Delicious Industries also produces stunning small press, greetings cards and vintage-style prints that’ll soon be available to buy online.
As well as the fabulous Noah Butkus …
… with gorgeous cards, posters and Tote bags from our good friends hello DODO …
… fabulous brightly coloured toys and posters from Snorkus …
There’s so so much to see this year over at the AT Open House you simply need to get yourselves down there. Kinda like, errr … NOW – before it’s too late! (The event runs every weekend in May all over the city).
The AT Open House is open every weekend throughout May from 11 – 6; you’ll find all the other gorgeous info you need including trail number and how to get there right here!
