our journey of discovery around the Worthing Artists Open Houses art trail starts at Colonnade House. Where better to collect your guide and orientate yourself than from the centre of town? Grab a coffee and a bite to eat at one of Warwick Street's cafés, and then begin with a look at the two fabulous exhibitions that we have on offer. Peon Boyle’s print studio is on the top floor of Colonnade House and she regularly exhibits here as part of the Sussex Printmakers group. For WAOH she is mounting a solo show, and will be on hand with demos and info about all things print. In the Main Gallery Ruth Mulvie returns with a new collection of paintings and prints. Her fantastical scenes are vivid in ice-cream colours and sunny tones. Beyond the strong, visual prowess, Mulvie’s work powerfully simulates a mood; her art transports us to sunnier climbs and invites us into glorious vistas and are snapped up by collectors in the UK and abroad. There will be plenty of affordable work to see and buy. All details at colonnadehouse.co.uk

arah Sepe and Barry Williams will be celebrating their Gallery's third birthday this year. Set in a traditional Victorian corner shop in Worthing’s West End – an area that is rapidly gaining a reputation for its eclectic mix of independent shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants – the Gallery is also their working studio, so a visit is a great opportunity to meet the makers and to discover what artists actually do all day. Their original artwork includes Sarah's textile-inspired art and sculptural ‘Wire Works’, Barry's photography and quirky recycled mixed-media ‘Conversation Pieces’, plus an interesting selection of their unique framed artwork, cards and prints. All are for sale. Their aim is to showcase locally-made art at realistic prices in an informal, friendly setting so that everyone can, hopefully, find something to suit their pocket. For three weeks from Saturday 15th June Sarah and Barry have invited three local guest artists – Christiane Kersten (ceramics), Denise Strange (painting) and Jo Collard (textiles) – to join them at the Gallery when, once again, they will be taking part in the annual Worthing Artist's Open Houses Trail, find them at www.worthingartistsopenhouses.com On the 7th of every month Sarah and Barry host a networking breakfast for local artists and art enthusiasts at Brunswick & Thorn Bistro in Worthing, www. brunswickandthorn.com. It is open to all artists and art-lovers so you would be very welcome to come along.
