A lively event with bar, music and ‘live painting’, there are more than 2000 original artworks and limited edition prints to peruse and contemplate buying from the 100 plus artists exhibiting there. True to its title, Talented now also attracts artists with credentials – this year including Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2017 finalist John Ball and multiple award winning photographic artist Marcus Jake. Art for sale is capped at £5,000 although most works range from £300 to £1,500 making it temptingly affordable. Entry to the fair is free over the weekend while tickets to the Friday night private view are £10 – readers of Galleries can enjoy a 50 percent off ticket price at Eventbrite using the code GALLERIES50OFF.
