WINDSOR.- The fair brings together an exciting mix of over 75 artists, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, ceramicists and selected galleries offering the very best in contemporary art with prices from £30 to £3,000. As one of only a few art fairs operating for both galleries and independent artists, it allows visitors to meet and buy from established and emerging artists directly and also see a more diverse range from professional galleries.
The formula proved successful in 2007 with over 3,500 visitors. This year the even wider choice of art from exhibitors from all over the UK and Europe and additional interactive activities - silk painting, art mobiles, antiques road show style art valuations and drawing workshops by Harry Potter illustrator Cliff Wright will make this an event not to be missed. The website www.windsorcontemporaryartfair.co.uk gives art enthusiasts a taste of what's to come.
