As a new enterprise, our history is short!

AOHF is a registered not-for-profit organisation. It began in 2014 because we felt many artists were struggling to find an audience for their art.

We also believed that many people want to buy art but were unlikely to seek art in galleries, so AOHF works to connect artists with a new audience, and connect the public with art they may not otherwise see.

In 2014, we held our first event — opening five private homes and showing the work of 26 artists. We estimate 2,500-3,000 people came through the doors – and everyone had such positive things to say about the event.
