Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
So where do I start with my thanks?
I want to say thank you to everyone one of our exhibitors, visitors, helpers, supporters, cake makers, gin distillers, coffee roasters, newspaper journalists and Stratford-upon-Avon Town Hall for making Contemporary Arts Fair Discover:Gather:Give November 2017 such a brilliant success!
The reviews from the exhibitors confirmed what I felt, that between us we have got the precise platform to really showcase some of the best talent in the Region, and it is becoming a destination in its own right by tourists and locals alike.
Thirty-four individual artists plus fourteen artists from the Visual Arts Group made up the total number of exhibitors and it felt a good number showcasing a variety of work and styles.
For me it is a culmination of a year’s work, supporting, planning, talking, giggling and enthusing. I am passionate about every part the process from conception, delivery to review.
Nothing is done in isolation and when everything comes together and I watch the artists wrap purchased work, answering questions about a commission in the Golden Cup Café, visitors taking photos of the vintage golden crockery or exhibitors networking with visiting artists, I give a happy sigh and mentally start planning for June 2018…..
If you would like to join us in 2018 for the new June or November Fair, please email me on Judith@discovergathergive.co.uk
