Art fairs and shows across the county
WOULD YOU like a Banksy or Damien Hirst for your home? Then you may want to get along to the Art Fair East at Norwich’s St Andrew’s Hall this month.
Limited editions from those stellar names, plus works from 75 other artists, will be on show and available to buy for art lovers looking for the chance to expand an existing art collection, start their own journey into collecting or buy original and authentic Christmas presents for loved ones.
Last year more than 3,500 visitors came to meet artists and art experts at Art Fair East, which was founded by Norwichbased Will Teather and Brian Korteling. Successful artists themselves, the organisers are passionate about getting more people interested in original contemporary art and helping artists to make a living from their work.
“We have a passion to get people more involved in art, to value it and cherish it. I believe this will be the first time that signed editions of work by the likes of Damien Hirst and Banksy will be available in the region,” said Will.
Also on show will be work from the Norwich School of Painters, including names such as John Kiki and Bruer Tidman, and artists from the UK, USA, Germany, Lebanon, France and more, many of who will be there in person to discuss their work.
Gallery specialists will be available to advise on collecting contemporary art, from affordable prints by recognised artists and new talent through to serious investments, including original paintings, prints, sculpture, photography and artworks made to commission.
Art Fair East runs from November 30 until December 3.
