Artists from across the country put their work on display at the 10th Windsor Contemporary Art Fair.


About 135 stalls showcased a variety work including paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, ceramics and photography.

The two-day event at Royal Windsor Racecourse offered talks from artists Moose Allain and Melanie Gow as well as workshops for young and old.

Windsor MP Adam Afriyie and the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway, were both on hand to help launch the exhibition.

Deborah James, who co-founded the event with Sarah McAllister, said the weekend had been 'busier than ever'.

She explained the fair started out with just 25 stalls and now attracts thousands of visitors over the course of the weekend, with all of the work on show up for sale.

Zed Zaravko Talijan travelled from Sussex with his semi-abstract paintings to exhibit in Windsor for the first time.

"The organisation is brilliant, it's very well thought through and it's a very comfortable venue for artists," he said.

"It's an opportunity to meet the customers and to hear how they feel.

"You can hear interesting things about your work. Someone will pick up on something about your work which you don't know."

The fair was held on Saturday and yesterday.
