Artists at this year’s Windsor Contemporary Art Fair have heralded the standard of work on display at the event as a ‘cut above the rest’.
Exhibitors from across the UK and Europe showcased their work during the two-day fair, which was held at Royal Windsor Racecourse.
Big names from the world of art were also present such as Paul Bell, winner of BBC One’s Big Painting Challenge.
But emerging talent also had an opportunity to shine and a host of artists from across the borough were on hand to speak to the public about their masterpieces.
Artist Becky Young, who has a home studio in Windsor, said: “I’ve been there the last three years and the quality of work at this fair was just a cut above the rest.
“I had lots of really good conversations with the public and it was great to be able to discuss the process of creating my art.
“They [the organisers] changed the layout ever so slightly and it just made things flow beautifully.”
The fair took place on Saturday and Sunday.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
