The Second Art Expo

First Terminus Road Art Expo
Following on from the success of the first Terminus Road Art Expo at the beginning of September, the indomitable Caroline and Tim Tradewell (The Secret Garden) are organising another event for Saturday the 10th of November. Again to be held on Terminus Road between Debenhams and T J Hughes, the Art Expo will be open from 10am until 4pm and there is already a good line-up of stallholders to entice you into shopping. This could be the perfect opportunity to pick up some unusual Christmas presents!

As of the 24th of October, the confirmed stallholders are ... (insert drumroll here) ...  
Emma Moreton, Monica Durrant, Carol Stratton, Jasmin Stringer (Sussex Art Studios and Marks Garden Art), the talented Will Gudgeon (photography), Gill Hamper, Lucinda Guy, Angela Osmond, Anita Woodward-Benn (Baby, Home and Me), Norbert Guyon, John Miller (photography), Jan Mirisola Jones (upyourownart), Abigail Myers (Velvet Canary), Pauline Smith (Affordable Art), Anne Barrell Ceramics, Jane Hay (Jane Hay Art), previous tE interviewee Mina O'Brien (photography), Darren Coldwell, and St Andrews Place Art School. (If I've missed anyone out, please pop a note in the Comments below. The same goes if you have a FB page or website, feel welcome to Comment the link!)

Also, perhaps of interest to potential Expo-ees, photographer Mina O'Brien's work shown at the first Expo got her an exhibition at the Da Vinci Hotel so dust off those lenses and brushes forthwith! There is still room for a few more artists to get involved so, if you would like to showcase your work, please get in touch with Caroline at The Secret Garden ASAP on 01323 640931 or email to

Terminus Road, Sat 10th Nov, 10:00-16:00.
Free admission.

  1. Managed to spend all my pennies at the Art Expo yesterday and happily wandered off home with my bag full of lovely new Art! I think there were slightly fewer stallholders than previously, but considering how cold they all looked, that was hardly surprising - and congrats to them for sticking it out all day. There seemed to be a more crafty emphasis than before and, of course, a great deal of attractive Christmas offerings. It was nice to see Will Gudgeon and Mina O'Brien doing well and I also got to discover several 'new-to-me' artists including portraitist Lucinda Guy, printer & painter Jasmin Stringer, jeweller Archipelago, button artist Dan Cooper, and painter Rita Chaplen. Expect some showcase blog posts over the coming weeks!
