This weekend Art At Five, one of Brighton’s most successful art galleries, celebrate their tenth anniversary by holding a special event and exhibition for the Brighton-based charity, drop4drop, whose mission is to help alleviate the global water crisis.
Art At Five’s efforts for drop4drop involve a special weekend-long celebration, exhibition and raffle to win one of ten original paintings (seen below) by the gallery’s star painters. Tickets are available to buy here at £10 each, until October 14th and winners will be announced on the gallery’s website on Tuesday October 22nd.

For the month of October Banksy has taken his work to the streets of New York in an artists residency.
He’s not giving specific details of where exactly the pieces will be, but is instead posting pictures of the work on his website, aided by audio guides, that can also be delivered directly to your mobile phone when you call the number found next to each street piece.
We particularly love the old delivery truck that’s been converted into a secret garden inside, complete with waterfall, butterflies and a rainbow. It visits a new location each night so if you’re NYC based check Banksy’s website to find out when it will be near you.
We popped along to Mr Bristow’s launch of his latest piece, ‘The Streets of Brighton – Kensington Gardens’, that took him five months to draw and includes incredibly detailed imagery of some of the North Laine’s buildings and shops, as well as some familiar faces too. If you’d like to add yourself to the picture and have a personalised print for yourself you can do. Just head to www.tristanbristow.com for details.

The streets of Brighton were lit up in all the colours of the rainbow last weekend, as Pride graced us here for another, wonderfully sunny weekend.
