About the Event
An exciting and eclectic arts fair, supported by both Warwickshire Open Studios and Visual Arts, is an opportunity to discover a wealth of artisanal work in the region.
The CONTEMPORARY ARTS FAIR DISCOVER: GATHER: GIVE is an exciting, lively and eclectic arts fair. We have gathered together the very best local and regional artisanal work where every piece is produced by the artists.
It is an opportunity to discover a wealth of artisanal work in the region over two floors in the historic Stratford-upon-Avon Town Hall.
For our fifth year we decided to celebrate, so we curated a new Summer CONTEMPORARY ARTS FAIR DISCOVER: GATHER: GIVE to be held annually over the first weekend in June. It was a great success and a showcase for new artists to the area, so pop the dates in your diary for next year.
The Winter CONTEMPORARY ARTS FAIR DISCOVER: GATHER: GIVE in November 2nd for the Private View, 3rd to 4th Open to the Public will have two opportunities to buy – the first is on the day where you can gather beautiful pieces together to buy immediately; the second is commissioning unique and inspiring gifts from the attending artists in time for Christmas in our November Fair. By holding the event early in the Christmas season, it allows sufficient time for commissions to be completed ready to be given with simple pleasure at Christmas or whenever you want…
There will be a Golden Cup Café selling tea, coffee, delicious homemade cakes for you to relax in and ponder over what beautiful and inspiring pieces of work to buy – and for whom!
It is free entry or with donations to Shakespeare’s Puppies Appeal (Guide Dogs for the Blind Registered Charity 209617) if you wish.
