The Windsor Contemporary Art Fair and The Wine Affair will return to Royal Windsor Racecourse, in Maidenhead Road, on Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10, showcasing the best of local, national and international art and wine.
More than 120 exhibitors, including renowned artists and
top galleries, will display their masterpieces at the ninth annual art fair, which will also feature workshops for visitors to get involved in and produce their own art.
One of the event founders, Deborah James, who is also behind the Reading Contemporary Art Fair, said: “We feel strongly that we offer real art
for real people.
“We are very pleased to offer both the seasoned collectors, as well as interested visitors, a great celebration of
art, from new and established artists, in an exciting range; painting, sculpture, photography, and new media.” Some of the returning local artists include photographer Tom Way, of Langley Park Road, Iver, and painter Mark Edward Coombe, of Alma Road, Eton Wick.
The fair will also feature some new, local talent including dollmaker Karen Mkrtchyan, from Mountbatten Square, Windsor, and the Gallery At Ice, based in High Street, Windsor.
Fellow fair founder Sarah McAllister said: “Over the last nine years, since the first Windsor Contemporary Art Fair, it has been important for us to never lose sight of our roots.
“From the beginning, the fair has promoted independent and emerging artists. We have always remained true to our principles.”
The fair will also collaborate with the Thames Valley History Festival with renowned author Helen Rappaport presenting a talk on the 100th anniversary of the birth of photography.
The Wine Affair returns for a second year featuring opportunities to meet representativs of boutique vineyards and local sellers and have a try their goods.
