New Home For Previously Evicted Art Studios
Red Herring Studios has been a part of the artistic community of Brighton for more than 30 years, and in 2017 they were forced to leave their workspace as it was set to be knocked down. This year, Red Herring Studios has found a new home in Portsdale.
When asked about their new space Nick Sayers, one of the 16 artists, said: “It’s exciting to have moved to this area – it’s quite industrial, and full of some fantastically creative companies: Blast Theory, Millimetre, Studio Morison, We Make Stuff Happen… and Small Batch Coffee HQ is our next-door neighbour, so what’s not to like?”
Since the studios have now reopened for business, the collective is looking to welcome more artists into their new space.
One of the newly accepted members, Amy Branton said: “There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within this diverse group of skilled artists, which can be shared for the benefit of the wider community. It is a fresh start for everyone, and promises to be a wonderful year of individual and collective growth.”
Red Herring aims to continue its ethos of offering affordable studio space to a wide variety of art practitioners including painters, ceramicists, illustrators, sculptors, textile artists and woodworkers.
