Brighton Art Fair's Big Heart Auction

It's time for a guest post so today we hand over to Anne-Marie to tell us about this year's Brighton Art Fair and their Big Heart Auction...

Brighton Art Fair is delighted to be supporting the fantastic work of Chestnut Tree House through their Big Heart Auction. Chestnut Tree House is the only children's hospice in East and West Sussex and cares for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-limiting conditions. Chestnut Tree House offers support for the whole family including psychological and bereavement support, end of life and short break care and sibling support.

Brighton Art Fair exhibitors have each been asked to decorate an A5 manila envelope which will be sold at the show in aid of the Big Heart Auction. The diversity and originality of the work on these envelopes is wonderful and we hope to raise as much as we can for this cause.

The fair always promotes a good balance in established and emerging artists, and insists that all work is exciting, fresh and exceptional, ensuring that Brighton Art Fair’s strong reputation as one of the must see visual arts events in the country is retained.
