Artists Open Houses in Ditchling
Artists Open Houses in Ditchling is over for another year. We think 2019 may have been our best year yet – here’s looking forward to 2020!
Art in Ditchling is a group of local artists who participate in Brighton Artists Open Houses during The Brighton Festival. The Art in Ditchling Trail showcases a range of high quality art, design and craft in houses, studios and workshops. Make a day of it to meet the artists and makers, explore the historic village as well as Ditchling Museum of Art+Craft.
This year we are pleased to announce that Phillip Dunn has been short listed for the 2019 Gemini: Painter of the Year Award. see: aoh.org.uk/awards-shortlists-2019/
The 2019 Art in Ditchling Trail is dedicated to the memory of Ralph Levy, creator of The Handmade House, who sadly died earlier this year. The Handmade House was a unique venue on the Trail, and provided numerous artists and craftspeople with an opportunity to showcase their work both in and around the house. Ralph was a maker in his own right and was equally at home working with metal and ceramics. He also taught ceramics and provided a stimulating and encouraging environment for people to learn this craft. A small tribute celebrating his achievements is on display in Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft during the May Festival. He will be missed by so many.
