“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton.
When walking around the Hurst Open Studios trail, you will see work by local artists while also being able to appreciate our beautiful village. Starting in 2003 with 8 artists, the trail now features 19 artists across 12 different locations. Discover a range of media including oils, photography, watercolour, textiles, silver and glass, and uncover some hidden gems.
Refreshments will be available from Sylvia Thornhill in Pitt Lane (profits split between St. Peter & St. James Hospice and Sussex Cancer Fund) and Jenny Hawkes in College Lane.
There will be a shuttle bus, kindly provided by Hurst College, running from 11:30pm to 3pm. The bus will take in all venues, running from studio 10 on College Lane, along Hurst High Street to Albourne Road (turning around at Mossy Mile), heading back along the high street then down Cuckfield Road and on to Chalkers Lane. The bus will then do the reverse route back to Studio 10 on College Lane. This is to avoid the pinch point on College lane.
See below for the full list of artists and the weekends they are exhibiting. Remember some locations are only open the first weekend so don’t miss out.
