The Other Art Fair, OCCCA and pics from the Something Borrowed exhibition...

I will be exhibiting work at The Other Art Fair next week.  This Fair is unique, the 100 emerging artists participating will be representing themselves.  A brand new concept in the art world, this will give artists the opportunity to actually meet the buyers, collectors and gallerists who attend the fair.

Myself and Twinkle Troughton are sharing a stand, we will both be exhibiting a mixture of new and older original paintings and a selection of limited edition prints.  Having been selected from hundreds of applicants, we are both really excited about this opportunity!  We've never had a stand at an art fair before, and The Other Art Fair seems like its going to be an amazing one to debut at!

There are some top names involved in the selection process, including the artist Charming Baker (who's paintings I love!), director of the BALTIC Godfrey Worsdale, Dr Anthony Downey of Sotheby's, Sophie Hastings of GQ, and Graham Fink of Ogilvy and Mather.

AND (I'm very excited about this bit.....) Harry Pye and Jasper Joffe will be selling art for 99p at their shop, giving Other Art Fair visitors the opportunity to collect art for less than a pound!

The Other Art Fair came by to interview me about my work for the website, you can view it here  Keep checking the site as I think Twinkle will have some footage up there soon too!

Anyway, we really hope you can join us and come along to the Bargehouse on Southbank for the fair next week.  Opening night is Thursday 24th November, and the Fair is open to the public Friday - Sunday.  Our stand is on the 4th floor.  You can buy tickets from the website here  or email me at tinseledwards@hotmail.co.uk

The other massively exciting thing is that I have some work in the London Calling exhibition at OCCCA, a group of 30 London based artists will be showing work at The Orange County Centre for Contemporary Art, USA this December.  

I've got lots to prepare for The Other Art Fair, so there will be more info on this to come soon!

And last but not least: Myself and Twinkle recently co-curated 'Something Borrowed', a group show featuring the work of ten artists.  We held the exhibition at the cutting edge new gallery on Vyner street, Cultivate.gallery website here

A mentalist First Thursday opening, followed by a busy weekend on Vyner street, and most importantly the brilliant artists who took part all helped to make it a huge success.  Thankyou Sean at Cultivate for all your help with the show, and thankyou to all of the participating artists:
Iain Andrews, Liz Bailey, Wanda Bernardino, J.A. Nicholls, Holly Revell, David Storey, David Troughton and Wen Wu

There's lots more pics to see on Twinkle's flickr
