For immediate release

Autumn Art Fair 2010

Saturday 16th October - Sunday 17th October

10.00am - 5.00pm

Housed in the magnificent surroundings of the Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington,

south-west London, the Autumn Art Fair is a firmly established major event in the visual

arts calendar. A Grade II* listed building, the Centre, a 19th century former church,

makes a unique setting for showing the best in contemporary fine art.

At this year’s Autumn Art Fair, taking place on Saturday 16th October - Sunday 17th

October, from 10.00am - 5.00pm, visitors will find a huge variety of fine art

encompassing a range of media including painting, sculpture, graphics, print, illustration

and mixed media plus high quality ceramics, jewellery and textiles. The Landmarks Art

Fairs focus on showcasing individual artists and crafts people, including recent

graduates and new talent, giving visitors the opportunity to meet and buy direct from the

artist rather than via a gallery.

A first at this years Autumn Art Fair will be ‘Shed Space’. Shed Space is a mobile visual

arts project, using sheds and gardens as gallery spaces for artists to exhibit. Its aim is to

make art more accessible, offering new locations and unique viewing experiences

outside of a regular gallery, where the artist is able to create and interact directly with the

public. At the Landmark Shed Space will be installing four sheds in the Centre’s outdoor

‘wilderness’ space. Each shed will be a unique art experience created by one of Shed

Spaces young artists that visitors to the Autumn Art Fair will be invited to enter.
