Midsummer Art Fair 2014
Saturday 21st June – Sunday 22nd June 2013
10.00am - 5.00pm
Housed in the magnificent surroundings of the Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington,
south-west London, the Midsummer 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 Midsummer Art Fair, taking place on Saturday 21st June to Sunday
22nd June, 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 Landmark’s 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.
New for this year is ‘Landmark Launch Pad’ which is an exciting opportunity for
emerging artists to exhibit their work alongside commercial artists in a professional
setting. The Landmark Art Fairs have established themselves over the last 20 years as
being high quality showcases for creative talent and have become well regarded within
the art buying public. The art fair curator Ben Kidger has allocated a separate room for
this exhibition in order to promote and introduce new talent to the commercial art world.
It is being coordinated and curated by new but highly committed and skilled individuals
who are studying fine art courses.
