FEBRUARY 2019

Take-off

Following last year’s highly-

successful inaugural event,

Contemporary Art Fairs –

Surrey is back at Sandown

Park, Esher, from 15th-17th

March with a full weekend

of over 160 curated artists

and galleries, live art

demonstrations and workshops

all in one place.

“Over one weekend,

you could enjoy the thrill of

discovering a future star, or

commission an artist to create

a unique piece for you; you

could become part of an artist’s

success or invest in a piece of

artwork and relish the status of

a conversation piece; or, you

could simply fall in love, and go

home with something that is a

part of your story forever.

"Come and enjoy the

experience of buying real art,

from real artists producing

exceptional work that looks

great in your home and feels

exciting to own,” says Deborah

James, Fair Director.

From established favourites,

galleries, emerging stars,

and selected new talent,

both national and European,

the artists work in a range of

media. This ranges from fine

art to high-end photography,

THE QUEST FOR

THAT PERFECT PIECE

OF ART

glass sculpture to lino print

work, textural abstract to

traditional oil landscapes.

“When you buy original

art, it’s often an adventure. At

our fairs you meet the artist

in person, hear their story of

the artwork, and understand

the feeling behind it. Because

the process of buying original

artwork at our fairs is so

different from buying mass-

produced artwork, you can

expect to have a great story to

tell at the end of it, creating a

personal connection between

you and the artwork you buy,”

says Sarah McAllister, Director

of Contemporary Art Fairs.

Contemporary Arts Fairs'

live demonstrations are a

chance to see how the artists

create their work. There is

also an interactive area with

artist-led workshops and an

Art Quest with prizes for young

visitors.

The famous Prince’s Trust

collectables are unique,

specially-produced, original

mini works donated by their

community of artists and have

raised over £65,000 for the

Prince’s Trust.

Mid90s

coming-of-age comedy-drama written

and directed by Hill, stars Sunny Suljic (

The festival will step back into the 1990s

again when it closes on 3rd March with the

UK premiere of the big-screen adaptation

of Scottish playwright Kieran Hurley’s hit

stage show

Beats

. Set in 1994, just as the

Criminal Justice Bill attempted to place

restrictions on Scotland’s rave culture

and the free party movement,

Beats

is

a universal story of friendship, rebellion

and the irresistible power of gathered

youth.

Beats

is directed by Brian Welsh

(

Black Mirror

), executive produced by

Steven Soderbergh, and stars young Royal

Conservatoire of Scotland graduates

Cristian Ortega and Lorn Macdonald in

their feature film debuts. The film features

an original soundtrack from Scottish club

the official festival after-party for all ticket-

holders at Argyle Street Arches.
