The ever growing Artwave 2016 festival starts today all across Lewes district. It runs for 3 weekends including the bank holiday showcasing local artists and makers in both towns and rural locations. With 123 venues packed with art, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture and more there is plenty of amazing artworks to suit most tastes. Artwave is divided into 6 art trails which are North Trail, Lewes Trail, South Trail, Haven Trail, East Trail and Seaford Trail. As an artlover you can pick a trail from Ditchling to Lullington and plan your day out in Sussex, soaking up the artwork and countryside as you go.

I’ve been exhibiting at Artwave for a few years now and love the location for Art and Soul. Situated right near the South Downs Way next to the village duck pond and old church, it’s a picture post card setting. Also Sue Barnes curates a very good show and is amazing at organising everything. Art and Soul at Falmer has many faithful followers and it’s not a surprise! I hope you can come and visit.
