The highly acclaimed Brighton Art Fair is held every autumn at the Regency Corn Exchange in the heart of the city's Cultural Quarter. Showcasing over 120 contemporary artists and attracting a capacity audience of just over 5000 visitors, the fair has built a strong reputation for exhibiting exceptional quality artwork in a welcoming, friendly environment.
Now in its seventh year, the Brighton Art Fair is the largest visual art exhibition on the South Coast with year on year sales growth exceeding expectations with over half a million pounds worth of art being sold in 2009, not including the commissioning work which inevitably arises from such events.
Painters, printmakers, ceramicists, photographers and sculptors will be exhibiting, chosen in a rigorous and competitive selection process to represent the most exciting and eclectic work across as wide a variety of methods and subjects as possible. This art fair is almost unique in that the artists themselves sell their work direct to the public, bringing a personal feel to viewing and to the buying process. Visitors enjoy meeting the artists - learning about their creative inspirations, techniques and future projects.
This year the Fair is supported by Elle Decoration, and is welcoming back the ARTHOUSE Meath, a charitable enterprise that creates and exhibits artworks for sale in printmaking and painting which celebrate the skills and talents of adults with learning disabilities.
The Art Fair runs from 16-19 September, and tickets are available on the door priced £6 (children under 14 free). Visit www.brightonartfair.co.uk for full information and details of special offers.
