Chester Arts Fair 2017 torna per la 6ª edizione

Chester Arts Fair torna per il sesto anno consecutivo dal 17 al 19 novembre 2017 presso il Chester Racecourse.

La più grande fiera dedicata agli artisti indipendenti del Regno Unito ospiterà diversi artisti britannici e internazionali con oltre 2.000 opere d’arte in esposizione, compresi dipinti, sculture, ceramiche e foto. Un programma completo di live talks e performance dal vivo, offrirà ai visitatori l’opportunità di capire il processo creativo artistico. I punti salienti saranno la scultura dal vivo di Christine Pike ed il live painting di Cheshire Mark Wigan in esposizione con il Chester Art Center.

Gli organizzatori della Fiera “Black Mango Art”  ospiteranno la prima competizione internazionale del Chester Art, in gara opere d’arte da tutto il mondo tra cui America, Corea del Sud, Francia, Germania e Regno Unito. L’Open Arts è una piattaforma per gli artisti emergenti per presentare il loro lavoro ad un pubblico più ampio.

I visitatori di quest’anno avranno l’opportunità di comprare opere del valore di 500 sterline a sole 100 sterline, il ricavato di queste vendite andrà alla campagna CAF100, i fondi raccolti andranno A The Countess Charity and the Babygrow Appeal. Gli artisti hanno donato un pezzo per sostenere la campagna, ma bisogna affrettarsi poiché questi pezzi di solito non rimangono appesi a lungo. Lesley Woodhead, responsabile della raccolta fondi presso il Chester Hospital ha commentato “Gli artisti hanno donato opere per raccogliere fondi per l’appello di Babygrow. Pezzi del valore di centinaia di sterline come Phillip Gerrard, Pete Aitchison e molti altri saranno in vendita a 100 sterline. Speriamo che i visitatori riescano a trovare un affare e raccogliere fondi per una grande causa“.

La “sala espositiva” è sponsorizzata dalla Fabulous Chair Company di Tarporley. Una stanza progettata per i visitatori dove immaginare i loro pezzi d’arte scelti in un ambiente che replica l’interno di una casa. Questa è un’occasione per i collezionisti di esprimere e portare i loro pezzi d’arte preferiti.

La coordinatrice della fiera artistica Laura O’Hare dice: “Chester Art Fair consente ai visitatori di accedere ad opere d’arte a prezzo accessibile e opere d’arte originali di alcuni tra i più importanti artisti internazionali. La fiera è anche entusiasta di annunciare emozionanti programmi e laboratori d’arte dal vivo che apprezzeranno anche famiglie e appassionati d’arte, infatti la fiera ospiterà lo staff dello zoo di Chester, in quanto sono previsti una serie di attività di ricreazione e artigianato gratuite aperte ai bambini di tutte le età”.

Chester Art Fair aprirà venerdì 17 novembre con un Anteprima VIP per la Countess of Chester Hospital. Durante il week end la Fiera è aperta sabato 18 e domenica 19 novembre dalle 10:30 alle 17:00.
