If you are an artist or a collector looking for a vibrant and diverse art scene, you might want to check out the Sussex Art Fairs. These are annual events that showcase the best of local and national talent in various venues across the county. Whether you are interested in painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, or jewellery, you will find something to suit your taste and budget at these fairs.
The Sussex Art Fairs are organised by the Sussex Art Events, a company that aims to promote and support the arts in the region. They have been running the fairs since 2018, and have attracted thousands of visitors and exhibitors each year. The fairs are open to both established and emerging artists, and offer a platform for them to connect with buyers, galleries, and the public.
The fairs are held in two locations: Sussex Art Fair West and Sussex Art Fair East. The West fair takes place in May at Goodwood Racecourse, near Chichester. The East fair takes place in October at Brighton Racecourse, near Brighton. Both fairs feature over 100 artists, who display their work in individual stands or curated sections. The fairs also include live demonstrations, workshops, talks, and entertainment.
The fairs are a great opportunity for artists to showcase their work to a wide audience, and to network with other professionals in the industry. They can also benefit from the marketing and publicity that the fairs provide, as well as the chance to sell their work directly to collectors. The fairs charge a commission fee of 10% on all sales, which goes towards covering the costs of running the events.
The fairs are also a great opportunity for collectors to discover new and exciting artists, and to buy original and affordable art. The fairs offer a range of prices, from under £100 to over £10,000, so there is something for everyone. The fairs also provide a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, where visitors can browse the artworks at their own pace, and chat with the artists directly.
