About us

Kemptown Arts is a networking hub for artists in Kemptown, Brighton. We produce the map/leaflet for the Kemptown Arts Trail as part of the Artists Open Houses (AOH) May Festival.

We work to support our members and promote our Open Houses in various media and can provide help if you are considering hosting an Open House for the first time.

“It’s is such a supportive group. When I was opening my house in Kemptown
for the first time they were there to help at every stage.”
Sophie Wake
Best Open House 2019

“Through the meetings I was guided in opening my first Open House.
We’re already looking forward to the next.”

James Foley

“We’ve really enjoyed opening our home as an art space.”
Cathy Moss
Percival Terrace Art House


Membership benefits

Membership provides online gallery space to individual members. We meet up on a regular basis; an opportunity to exchange ideas and meet other artists who are opening their homes and studios in the AOH Kemptown Trail. Our members also have the opportunity to participate in group shows, having previously held these at Grey Walls Gallery at Brighton Marina.
