Fiveways Open House Group Exhibition
In view of the cancellation of this years Brighton Festival and Artists Open Houses, this exhibition of work by the Fiveways Artists Group is a snapshot of a “show that never was”.
It is a welcomed opportunity to collaborate with St Augustine's Centre for the Arts and provides a safe exhibition space in which the group can show some of their work.
Back in the early 1980s Yorkshire, born painter Ned Hoskins moved to Brighton following a successful period painting in the United States. frustrated with the lack of opportunity for the emerging artists And the lack of exhibition space within the town, Ned decided to open his house in Hollingbury Road to visitors during the 1982 Brighton Festival.
By 1988 a small number of Artists Open Houses had become an established feature of the festival. Following Ned's collaboration with four other artists, the founding members of the Fiveways Artist Group, initially known as “Five at Fiveways”, were awarded this Zap Award, for the best visual art event in the Festival.
Ned Hoskins, along with other formative members of the group, including Anneliese Clark, remain as Associate Members of the group and both have contributed work for this exhibition. Their work is shown alongside work from 16 members of the current group who have chosen a mix of images to create a varied to show.
The Fiveways artists group are committed to showing how artwork can find its place in a domestic setting. we hope you enjoy this exhibition, albeit you can't sit on the sofa!
