What's On Brighton Arts Club this week

This week we are preparing for new upcoming shows and the public are welcome to come and see our work in progress and to have a cuppa and a chat.

I am undercoating the gallery front tomorrow and sketching my mural having decided that graffiti is a style not an art so I was better doing the shopfront myself.
The Vulva by Emma Buggy is still fast to the wall and has not been vandalised but the weather has been mild and we anticipate a few months before the artwork crumbles in the elements. It draws a lot of tourists and is photographed more than the cats....it is all about the pussy though girls and don't we know it!!!!!!

As always Open Mic is on Thursday and Po will be hosting as Mirabah is away but he has downloaded a Korg on his phone and we have rigged up my electric cello so we are bound to have some fun with all our toys when he gets back.

I like The Go Go are playing Saturday and we are putting together a mini festival for the day so we can all enjoy the new kids on the block. There are talks also of a residency for them!

I am painting backdrops for the Brighton Skinhead Reunion though I doubt if I can get to the party as I will be needed here. Also I am starting on the 10 pieces for my solo show on the 8th June as part of our Alternative Brighton Fashion Week.

The 7th of June we host the great talent that is Momus. I am looking forward to meeting him and having an intellectual argument about something intellectual. This is a real coup for the club although I don't believe in hierarchies of talent (oh God, it must be Monday).

Two new artists moved in and will be here tomorrow along with the older ones. I best get a curry on.

Emma Buggy does Channel 4s Embarrassing Bodies




Remember that Emma Buggy is showing at the Brighton Arts Club as part of Minge Fringe and that her work is also on the exterior wall of the club..........


Emma Buggy is relocating to Brighton and will be having a studio at the club. We are all thrilled to have talent as well as courage through our doors.

Events at Brighton Arts Club this weekend!

Minge Fringe kicks off 2 days of celebrations.....
Saturday we have an amazing array of Vagina art and performances celebrating the female form.

Guest performances from Dominic Von Trapp and Normanton Street along with a host of crafting activities will compliment the Cunt Crew.

We will be filming the event for our TV outlets naturally.

Sunday and quite by accident, our next door neighbour, the Tattoo Workshop, will be hosting a free outdoor part just outside our gaff........lots of stalls and a Juice Radio DJ will smooth the event along nicely and we will no doubt poach a few unsuspecting customers who we can corrupt with our arty farty ways.

Should be a heavy weekend......I may loose my voice due to being verbally amusing! Or I may loose my way into a open tattooed arms.........from the vagina to the ink.....will let you know!

Open Mic Thursday at Brighton Arts Club with Po as stand in

Open Mic this evening from 7.....though we don't start till 8 due to stragglers and chatting, will be run by Po as Mirabah is off on a training course 'oop nerth'.....well Birmingham.

I have a Vegan Korma should you need some feeding and as always we have grandma's double choc chip organic brownies and gin.

Life is just grand as we kick start the weekend at Brighton Arts Club!


Fet Life and spreading the c word gospel at Brighton Arts Club

Blimey.....it is already afternoon and I still haven't had my second coffee........thank Goddess for the cherry pie and cream mum made....that'll keep a Countess going.

Someone had phoned yesterday to quizz me about her business model. She talked for hours about what she does and seemingly is an 'all rounder'.

The woman, who I sneakingly suspect may just be a 'Come Dine With Me ' stalker as they did repeat it recently on telly, was busy at the door before 12 noon.......or my first coffee!

I showed her our Brighton Arts Club facilities like a good little arts club owner as my heart was sinking fast at the prospect of a 'fan' bothering my breakfast time.

The woman, now christened in my head as 'annoying woman' asked about running a stall at our next show.

Here was my chance.

'Well, it is a show to celebrate the cunt', said I.
She looked bemused and said slowly....'Pardon'.

I had to translate it several times........she got the point at 'vagina' and left saying her work may not be suitable.


Good news is that we have made the Fet Life forums so I guess we will have some kinky boys and girls come to celebrate our vaginas with us. They may be disappointed as there wont be much bondage here, more nakedness and not a strap on in sight.

We will welcome all though and it is great to think that the curiosity of the vulva, the labia, the pubis, the clitoris, and all these things together in harmony are so interesting as to draw a crowd or to just as easily repel those without the gumption for true feminine beauty.

Preparing for the Rootz Fusion day at Brighton Arts Club



There is calm at the club today as we prepare emotionally for tomorrow and the night of art, food, music and much more from our resident artist Rootz.

The event kicks off at 7pm.
Bar is open earlier of course and the cafe is here all day but be prepared for some stressful souls with hammers charging around screaming, possibly crying, because a picture is misaligned!

And in between we have open mic this evening where we welcome acoustic musicians, poets and story tellers to the bosom of the club to showcase their talents or to watch and make friends. Again we kick off at 7pm.
