MADE- Brighton's Design and Craft Fair is organised by the team that runs the highly successful Brighton Art Fair since 2004- artist and printmaker Sarah Young and adminstrator Jon Tutton.
Brighton Art Fair is now firmly established as a major annual event in the arts calendar of the South East. It is the largest art exhibition on the South Coast and brings together over 100 of the most talented national painters, printmakers, photographers and sculptors along with artists groups and Sussex based galleries.
At least 5500 visitors visit the Art Fair and MADE each year. Many of them enjoy talking to and buying directly from the artists and makers themselves, learning more about their artwork, techniques and interests. We hope this encourages buyers to contact artists and makers after the event to buy or commission work and establish a longer term on-going relationship.
Jon Tutton and Sarah Young
are co-founders and directors of the fair.
Jon is the main organiser and head honcho, risk-taker and forward
thinker. Most of his time is spent in one way or another on the fairs.
Sarah is head of selection, placement and does most of the graphics for the
shows. She also exhibits as she has been a maker a lot longer than an
event organiser. (So that she can continue to make, she sticks to the
above mentioned jobs and may well come over as pretty clueless if asked
about anything else!)
Chris has been head of a team of helpers that varies from event to event, but among the stalwarts are Al, Luke, Stephen, Cat (Chris's wife), Lucy, Mark, Sarah ( Jon's lovely niece), and Gav. Chris has been helping right from the start since he was 19, and is also Jon's lovely nephew. They do everything to help in the smooth running and friendly atmosphere of the fairs from loading and unloading for the exhibitors, to manning the credit cards, filling the goody bags and pouring the wine!
