International. Contemporary. Art.
NEARLY 4,000 art-lovers packed Oxford Town Hall for a weekend-long show of global talent. Oxford’s first International Art Fair, pictured, featured work from 150 artists – including many from Oxfordshire.
Organiser Joelle Dinnage, inset, said: “It’s the first time Oxford has ever held such an art fair. I was completely overwhelmed by how many people came. It was great.”
The event started with an opening preview on Friday night, featuring music and live painting sessions. The fair drew to a close yesterday. All of the artwork shown was available to buy, with some coming from artists based in Japan, Russia and India.
Ms Dinnage, 28, from Marley Close, Oxford, organised the event with Natal Vallve from the Global Art Agency.
2015 OXFORD INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR
The Global Art Agency is very excited to already announce the second edition of the “Oxford International Art Fair” for 6th, 7th and 8th February 2015, again at the Oxford Town Hall. This second edition will be bigger and even better, with more rooms and spaces, more artworks for sale, and a special Gallery hall. This three day art extravaganza, is a showcase of modern and contemporary art in the beautiful setting of the city’s atmospheric town hall.
Visitors to the event will be able to admire the collections, meet the artists who created them and buy pieces for their home or work place. They will also be able to witness artists at work and add their vote to the Oxford International Art Fair Awards which celebrate the best artists on show at the exhibition.
