East Kent Artists’ Open Houses

Welcome to East Kent Artists’ Open Houses 2020 or EKOH for short. Now in its 20th year, EKOH has gone from strength to strength with more artists than ever, over 200 artists spread over 70 houses and studios. We are also delighted to include Margate, Cliftonville and Deal and hope to extend our range around Kent’s Creative Coast.

The artists’ trail gives the public a personal insight into how an artist works within their specialised field. It opens up a wealth of information and interest to pave the way for making new contacts and discovering opportunities for anyone interested in taking up new fields of creativity. The trail is your chance to visit artists in their homes, to speak to them in person about their work and to find out what is happening in your local area. This is a rare opportunity to experience a diverse array of high quality work in a relaxed setting; with so many venues to choose from there should be something for everyone. So, plan your trip and prepare to be inspired and surprised.

All houses are open weekends during the festival

10th/11th, 17th/28th, 24th/25th October 2020 – 11am – 5pm (unless stated)
