Finding original, stand-out artwork for your home is easy when you know where to look.
Contemporary Art Fairs – Windsor, on at the Royal Windsor Racecourse, brings more than 160 artists and galleries together in one place over one weekend, giving art lovers the best pportunity to find exactly what they are looking for and have a great time doing it.
Art fair co-director Deborah James said: “You don’t have to hope you come across an artist accidentally, you don’t have to buy something anonymous without knowing anything about it, you don’t have to settle for a poster because you can’t find the perfect piece.
“You can buy real art, from real artists producing exceptional work that looks great in your home and feels exciting to own.”
With a private viewing evening there is a chance to appreciate fine art and fine wine, with room to engage with other art enthusiasts – it’s a real social event.
Or drop in any time over the weekend to a fair full of great contemporary art, by living artists.
“We have 14 years of delivering high-quality art events, giving an immersive experience in art, somewhere visitors have the
opportunity of meeting the artists for a unique insight, falling in love with a piece, taking it home and making it their own,” said co-director Sarah McAllister.
Whether you know what you are looking for or are browsing for inspiration, there is simply no substitute for seeing so much excellent choice in one place.
With a winning mix of truly great art across a wide range of tastes and styles, an interactive art space,
licensed restaurant and wine tasting, the fairs are a one-stop experience for all-day viewing of good, real art.
