Sandown Park Racecourse will host the new Contemporary Art Fairs – Surrey on February 23-25. Taking place in Sandown’s Surrey Hall the event, which runs alongside sister shows in Windsor and Reading, expects to attract more than 3,500 visitors.
The Contemporary Art Fairs – Surrey show will bring together more than 160 artists, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, ceramicists and selected galleries from all over the UK and Europe to showcase their contemporary art. Visitors will be able to attend a number of workshops and demonstrations from artists and galleries who will advise on how to create a unique and creative space in homes and offices.
Sarah McAllister, co-director of Contemporary Art Fairs, commented: “Following the success of our Reading and Windsor shows we wanted to add a third event to our portfolio. Sandown Park really fits the bill for the launch of our Surrey show. The Surrey Hall is the size for us and allows us to set up single stand spaces for artist, which makes for a better environment overall.”
Tracy Rusbridge, business development executive at Jockey Club Venues London, added: “We’re excited to welcome Contemporary Art Fairs to Sandown Park for their Surrey launch event. The racecourse is a really blank canvas venue so we’re looking forward to seeing the contemporary art decorating the Surrey Hall.”
