Lindfield artist Brett Hudson is still celebrating after being announced a winner of the Hahnemuhle Fine Art UK Award last month.

Brett submitted a piece to the Royal Society of British Artists Exhibition (RBA) earlier this year, along with 3,500 others.

“I took it up to London be to be reviewed,” he said, “and was delighted when I learned that it would be one of the 120 works of art on display.”

The exhibition, held at Mall Galleries, was officially opened by RBA President Nick Tidman and broadcaster and artist Thomas Schafernacker and ran until the middle of July 2019.

Lindfield artists set to open their studio

Two Lindfield artists, who met while exhibiting at the Arts Festival in 2015, have joined forces to create what they hope will become a new village tradition. 

Brett Hudson and Georgina (George) Moir will be staging an Open Studio event for families over the Arts Festival weekend this September.

Brett and George were inspired after visiting the Open House Art Trail at the annual Brighton Festival.

“We had both visited open houses and agreed that they provided a lovely and relaxing way to look at art in different surroundings,” said Brett. “With so many creative people in the village and lovely buildings, Lindfield is perfect place for an art trail so we thought we would go for it and open my garden studio!” 

The hope their event will encourage other artists to open up their homes and studios to create an art trail in the village. “It would be great if other artists could join us and open their houses - if not this year, maybe next year,” added Brett.
