August 2015 for immediate release
Windsor Contemporary Art Fair
14th-15th November 2015
Championing the most exciting artists working in the UK and Europe today,
Windsor Contemporary Art Fair brings you into contact with both award-
winning and emerging artists.
This year you will have the chance to meet BBC One’s winner of 'The Big
Painting Challenge', Paul Bell; who will be exhibiting and available to talk
about his career, and experience under the national spotlight.
Along with a wide range of award-winning and nationally recognised talent
like: recipient of the Pro Arte Award (2014), the Colart Award (2012) & the
Golden Award (2010) for her paintings at the NAPA National Exhibitions, Lisa
Traxler; ZSL Wildlife Photography 2015 Perfect Moment Runner-up, Tom Way
and Artist of the Year for Artists and Illustrators Magazine, Camilla Dowse.
A Heart of Glass will be bringing a new British artist, Elliot Walker, who was a
finalist in the prestigious British Glass Biennale, and won the highly regarded
national Craft & Design magazine award. Featured in both the International
Artist Magazine and American Art Collector Magazine, Kristine Nason will be
showing following a solo exhibition at The Savill Building in Windsor Great Park.
For over a decade, the artists presented by the founders, Sarah McAllister and
Deborah James, have been a mixture of nationally recognized and new
talent, and those who have gone on to become well known.
Deborah James says, “Over the years we have been consistently selected by
renowned artists to exhibit, who welcome the opportunity to showcase their
work to a wider audience, and grow their engagement with real people
outside the art world.”
Sarah McAllister says, “It’s also one of the greatest pleasures to spot a talent,
an artist we believe in, and watch them grow to become established in the
art world, and loved by people.”
Drawing the attention to the unique perspectives of the artists, and dissolving
the barriers between the artists and those who love art, is one of the highlights
of the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair weekend.
It is the chance to get to know a celebrated artist in person, and have a
direct conversation with them about their work. Many of the artists have
fascinating stories to tell which often inspire their creations.
It is a chance to get to know the artist of a work you have fallen in love with,
commission something unique to you in a style you have a passion for, or find
something that becomes a conversation piece in your home.
Many people enjoy becoming part of an artist’s social network, or enjoy the
discovery of and philanthropic support of a rising star. Being around, involved
in, and living with Art is life-affirming and invigorating.
There will also be workshops run by Reading’s flagship Arts Co Op, Jelly, the
famous, collectable one-off works, especially created to raise money for the
Prince’s Trust, and interactive projects to add to the experience.
Once again, Windsor Contemporary Art Fair has ensured a truly national and
European flavour, with artists of all media in attendance from all around the
“You can meet the stars and the rising stars, which will be your favourites at
the end of your visit?”
