Thank you to artist Pedro Sousa Louro for capturing the Wimbledon Art Fair and congratulations on selling all your work displayed at the event! There is still time to visit.
25 YEARS OF UNIQUE EVENTS
This November, Wimbledon Art Fair returns for its 25th anniversary with over 150 artists, designers and makers. Formally known as Wimbledon Open Studios, this is the same prodigious event with a new name to reflect the browse and buy focus of these twice yearly art fairs. This is a truly unique event on the arts calendar and is one of the only free entry fairs in London.
Every visitor is given the rare opportunity to step inside the hidden world of the artist. Over four days, you can walk into paint splattered private working studios and meet the artists and makers behind some of London’s leading contemporary arts and crafts.
Held from Thursday 16 to Sunday 19 November 2017, the fair is hosted at Wimbledon Art
Studios – two buildings, eight floors and hundreds of studios to discover. This not-for-profit studio campus is a thriving creative community of both established, award-winning artists and exciting emerging talent. The Art Fair will present a diverse range of artists and makers, such as:
LoveJordan, the collaborative work of artists Jonny Love and Samuel Jordan. Exhibiting from London to Miami, commissioned by the BBC to Saudi Royal Family. Fascinated by complexity, en masse, sprawling cities, human desire to fill empty spaces and miniatures.
Emma Leone Palmer, featured most recently on Sky Arts, Portrait Artist of The Year (2017), Winner of The London Contemporary Art Prize and currently exhibiting in The Wallace Collection – this portrait artist captures gritty, real, expressive human beings with a load of paint, glitter and lube.
Yuta Segawa, Japanese ceramic artist specialising in producing miniature pottery, challenging what the human body can make at such a small scale. Exhibiting jaw-dropping miniatures from Switzerland to Dubai, London to Tokyo.
AFFORDABLE, ORIGINAL ART
Discover an inspiring contemporary collection of original paintings, editioned prints, photography, ceramics and sculptures. Whether you’re buying for your own home or seeking a special seasonal gift, Wimbledon Art Fair has something for all tastes and budgets, from as little as £70 to £5k+ for the more serious buyer.
Small board works will once again be available to purchase before the art fair. These artworks start their life as square wooden blocks, on which the artists create their mini masterpieces. These are one off pieces the likes of which you’ll never be able to purchase again. These will initially be sold online – often the works are snapped up by buyers within hours of their release. Early access will be available to keen buyers as a perk of pre-booking a visit to Wimbledon Art Fair.
