Next weekend (20-22 September) the Brighton Art Fair will be celebrating its 10th anniversary. Today we hand over the blog to Anne-Marie to give us an insider's guide to this year's event...
Ten years of the Brighton Art Fair, and it’s going to be a fantastic celebration! With some amazing visual surprises lined up, even more fantastic exhibitors, one at just 16 being the youngest ever, and the use of the beautiful spacious Dome café and bar, where visitors can relax and enjoy culinary treats. It really is going to be a very special show. Brighton Art Fair brings together over 100 of the best contemporary artists from the UK and abroad. Some have exhibited before, some are brand new to the event, but their work is all exciting, fresh and exceptional. Brighton Art Fair takes place in the majestic and historic Corn Exchange at The Dome in the heart of the city. The fair has built a very strong reputation for presenting beautiful work in a relaxed, informal and friendly environment.

To really celebrate the tenth year, Brighton Art Fair is further supporting ARTHOUSE Meath, a charitable social enterprise offering art sessions, run by professional artists, to people with varying needs and abilities, in a caring, sheltered environment in which the artists develop social skills, work ethics, team participation and technical skills. This year Brighton Art Fair exhibitors have been asked to take part in a large collaborative piece to raise more funds for the charity. Each artist is producing their own piece of artwork on four wooden blocks, all of which will be shown in the foyer at the Corn Exchange during the fair and will be sold to the public for £30 each. The results have been phenomenal, and they will all look stunning grouped together.
