The day of the beginning of the art fair weekend at Candid Arts in Angel / Islington in London is upon us starting with a preview evening tonight (with drinks!) and going into this weekend. I’ve been preparing for the Islington Contemporary Art & Design Fair for months now creating new paintings that will be shown for the very first time. They include paintings that received lots of compliments from the Liberty team (they called them beautiful and me talented… if I may brag…) during Liberty’s Open Call for designers this year.
Here are the important details:
- Day and Time: Friday (tonight!) from 5 – 9 pm and Saturday and Sunday (this weekend!) from 11 – 6 both days
- Where: Candid Arts building (right behind Angel Tube station) – address is 3 - 5 Torrens Street, Angel, Islington, EC1V 1NQ; +44 (0)20 7837 4237
- Cost: Absolutely Free! Both the preview evening tonight and the entire weekend, entry is free and everyone is welcome
- Why: Because Angel is a fabulous neighbourhood to be in, because there are two floors packed with beautiful paintings and sculptures from talented artists, because you can by direct from the artist and because you know you want some lovely new artwork to brighten your home
And to tempt you, here is a before picture from last evening’s set up…. Blank white walls…. And a necessary rubbish bin for all the wrapping and packaging. For the after with all the lovely artwork set up and fully on show, you’ll just have to come to visit us in person! Stop by my booth and say hello – I’m right by the entrance.
I hope to see you all there and happy Friday!
