Steve Yeates' 'The Dancing Flight' greeted visitors as they entered the exhibition.

A fibreglass dancer was just one of the many works of art at the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair on the weekend.

Hundreds of art-lovers looked at collections of paintings, sculptures and photographs at the Royal Windsor Racecourse, with works priced between £40 and £4,000.

On Sunday, the event also introduced the Wine Affair which gave visitors the opportunity to try and buy wine, as well as taking part in master classes.

Event organiser Deborah James said the fair, in its eighth year, was fully booked with exhibitors by June and there was already a waiting list for next year's event.

She said: "Each year the work and exhibitors get better, we've had a really fantastic range of artists exhibiting their work here today."

Eton Wick artist Mark Coombe exhibited two collections focusing on animal portraits and façades.

He said: "Quite a lot of people have shown an interest in my work and coming somewhere like this makes you feel appreciated as an artist."

Former Windsor Boys' School pupil Tom Way showcased a portfolio of wildlife photography, taken in Sri Lanka, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.

Windsor MP Adam Afriyie opened the fair at a private viewing on Friday.
