Our Top 5 Brighton Art Exhibitions this October

Published On September 21, 2015 | By Ink_d Gallery | Theatre & Arts Features

Brighton is fit to burst with amazing art galleries and with so many exhibitions going on every month it can be hard to know which to visit. One of the City’s most eclectic galleries, Ink_d Gallery, gives us a monthly guide to their top 5 exhibitions to help you choose. Here are their top 5 Brighton art exhibitions for October 2015.

Rare Prints Show at Ink_d

The ‘Rare Print Show’ will feature rare prints and sold out editions by contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst, Banksy, Shephard Fairey, Peter Blake and Eine. It will be an opportunity for those with such pieces to sell or trade them in, while giving those looking to buy a chance to acquire pieces they wouldn’t find elsewhere. Contemporary art fans should make time to see the show, as it will feature pieces by modern-day greats that are rarely on public display.

Date/Time: 10 Oct – 15 Nov | Mon-Sat 10am-6pm / Sundays 12-4pm
Admission: Free

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the University of Brighton, Rewilding Sussex hopes the student’s designs will encourage a greater understanding of nature and promote wellbeing among city residents.
