Brighton Art Fair - Launch

We finally got Brighton Art Fair built, hung and opened with a Private View Party on Thursday night. The feedback amongst the guests was that it was the best selection yet and the show surprises and excites each year. The Private View was quite busy with visitors and there were quite a few sales.

My Camera died at a critical point yesterday so I don't have too many pictures of the art (I'll try and do some tommorrow) but here are some strange pictures of the private view.

We have a lovely review on the artists and makers blog - entitled "Brighton Art Fair is best one yet".

Chris Knight's birds - Chris has displayed 100 birds throught the show - on ledges, stand walls and in a large dove-cote in the cafe area.
The obligatory drinking chanpagne in front of art group shot.

Michelle Ogundehin (editor in cheif - Elle Decoration) and me (Jon Tutton - fair director) after Michelle opened the fair.

Happy campers Annabet and Mel, admiring the art and meeting old friends.

Sarah Youngs fresh (well wet) paintings - still lifes and more figurative narrative work.
