Tassells are pleased to be once again opening its doors to the popular Artists’ Open House Trails which is part of the Canterbury Festival.

Now in its twelve year, the trails feature 53 houses with over 182 artists. Tassells have been part of the trails since 2004 and is proud to be part of the festival. Susan Anderson, a partner at Tassells, comments “We are very excited this year to have internationally renowned Robert Jarvis with us. He will be showing his interactive sound installation “Keybird”, which comprises of a musical keyboard that instead of playing musical notes, has a birdsong on every key. It creates for its users a light-hearted but deep connection with birdsong in general and we are sure it will create a great deal of interest.”

“We also have new works from Elizabeth Higgs and Russian artist, Irina McGahan, remarkable nature inspired jewellery from Siobhan Timoney, stunning photography from Steve White and our own Jane Bowell. Not to mention the atmospheric watercolours from Tassell’s partner, Ian Wessels. It will be a wonderful exhibition and well worth a visit.“

The trails take place in Canterbury, Faversham, Herne Bay and Whitstable. All houses are open on the following weekends during the festival; 13th/14th October, 20th/21st October and 27th/28th October 2012 between 11am – 5pm (unless otherwise stated).
