Worthing Artists Open Houses comes to Colonnade House

After a brief hiatus; Worthing Artists Open Houses are back in town. Over two weekends in the run-up to Christmas, artists across town will be opening their doors to art lovers showing their craft, painting, sculpture, ceramics & more.

Since 2016, Colonnade House has supported Worthing Artists Open Houses as a Community Partner and participated as a venue. This year, Colonnade House has three exciting and diverse exhibitions running across both weekends. Make sure you visit Venue 10, pick up a map, and choose your route.
