Art Fair East, at Nor­wich’s St An­drew’s Hall, is the eastern re­gion’s largest, most pop­u­lar and liveli­est con­tem­po­rary art event.

Now in its fourth year, it brings to­gether artists, gal­leries and deal­ers.

The fair takes place from Fri­day, Novem­ber 30 to Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2 and around 200 artists will be ex­hibit­ing.

Founded and cu­rated by ex­pe­ri­enced arts pro­fes­sion­als Will Teather and Brian Kortel­ing, Art Fair East show­cases qual­ity gal­leries, deal­ers and artists and has be­come one of the coun­try’s lead­ing fairs out­side Lon­don.

As well as be­ing an im­por­tant show­case for artists and gal­leries in Nor­folk and Suf­folk, Art Fair East also fea­tures ex­hibitors from Lon­don, around the UK and over­seas.

Teather and Kortel­ing are care­ful to make sure that there is al­ways a good mix of re­turn­ing ex­hibitors and new artists so that ev­ery year is dif­fer­ent.

New par­tic­i­pants in­clude East Lon­don Print­mak­ers and pop­u­lar Nor­folk-based artist Lucy Love­heart. Lucy spe­cialises in cre­at­ing mag­i­cal pic­tures with a naïve and child­like charm.

As Jo Mullins, of Nor­folk’s Heart of Glass gallery, says: “Art Fair East keeps get­ting bet­ter, with a wide se­lec­tion of art to suit all tastes and bud­gets and a very friendly, wel­com­ing at­mos­phere.”

An­other ex­hibitor will be Phil Saxton. He is based in Gilling­ham, near Bec­cles, Suf­folk, and works from home. Yorky, as Phil is known, burns im­ages on to wood, (py­rog­ra­phy). He sees im­ages man­i­fest from the shapes of the grain and blow torch in hand, de­vel­opes those im­ages.

Art Fair East is spon­sored by Musker McIntyre.
