Last weekend I had a stand at the Landmark Autumn Art fair at a stunning location in a former church in Teddington. It’s the second time I’ve shown there and it was good to catch up with some fellow artists who were also there last year.
Setting up on the Friday went pretty smoothly although trying to get 35 framed works to all hang level is a bit of a challenge against the clock. Once hung I had the opportunity to explore the other artists on show and reflect on my own display which featured work from the last 9 months.
The private view was good with a decent number of people through the door and lots of good conversations with art enthusiasts.
Saturday morning was a little slow to begin but picked up before lunch and included a couple of celeb spots as Milton Jones and Vince Cable perused the stands. My White Hart Lane collage was a talking point with Vince (as I like to call him) and it was good to talk football with him.
Sunday seemed to bring a slightly bigger crowd and I was able to relax and enjoy the day having made some sales on Saturday. It is an absolute privilege when people chose to buy one of my paintings so when I got a few more customers during the afternoon it made my weekend before it was time to pack down and head home.
