Now in it's 27th year, The Artwave festival is the jewel in our district's art calendar. Every year it provides a platform for local artists from Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven and surrounding villages to showcase their work. Exhibitions, workshops, special events and open houses take place in artists' homes, gardens, galleries, shops, village greens and churches. Over three consecutive weekends, you can enjoy a diverse array of art, and all for free!

This year's event will take place later than usual, and  some changes have been made to the format due to Covid-19. However the Artwave team are working to deliver a safe, successful festival and looking forward to another celebration of local art and creativity. They believe art and culture benefit everyone, and that coming together as a community is needed more than ever.

It has not been possible to produce a printed brochure this year, so please visit our Artwave listings page to plan your visit (link under "Further Information" above right). 

This is a rare opportunity to meet the artists and makers and pick up some unique artworks at reasonable prices. From portrait painters to potters, photographers to printmakers - pop along and say hello!
