As the weather gets colder (and the outside world gets more expensive), you’d be forgiven for retreating into your home more often, reaching for the remote and cosying in. So, what better time to upgrade those home interiors? Instead of mourning the loss of the Tottenham IKEA, we’ve got news of an art fair in Wimbledon that is well worth getting off the sofa for. The Wimbledon Art Fair will welcome you into the studios of over 150 of the capital’s most talented artists between November 17–20, inviting you to browse their artworks for free, and give you the chance to buy your next statement piece directly from the creator.
Located at Wimbledon Art Studios, Wimbledon Art Fair beckons one and all, whether you’re an art-loving amateur, or connoisseur and collector – they’re about making art accessible for everyone. The range of art on sale is diverse and original, suitable to a plethora of budgets and tastes, and created by both established, award-winning artists and exciting, emerging talent. Works from painters, ceramicists, photographers, and everything in between will be showcased, and you’ll have exclusive access to the creators themselves, allowing you to discuss their pieces with them directly.
Across the four-day fair, if you need to take a moment to digest the beauty of the incredible pieces you’ve seen, the studio cafe is a great spot to relax and perhaps have a bite to eat. On the first night (Thursday, November 17), shoppers can also indulge in complimentary drinks and listen to live music, as they amble between the thousands of breathtaking photographs and original paintings. For those bringing along the kids, there are some family friendly activities on site, such as an art trail (available on the Saturday and Sunday only).
While the event is totally free to attend, if you pre-book your tickets via the Wimbledon Art Fair website, you’ll benefit from exclusive access to the online mini-masterpiece sale, before it opens to the general public, and even be in with the chance to win £200 to spend at the fair. Head to the website to find out more, and give the Wimbledon Art Fair a follow on Instagram to get to know the artists who’ll be showcasing in November.
