Success for third Oxford International Art Fair

MORE than 6500 art lovers eager to snap up an original piece of contemporary work filed through the doors of Oxford Town Hall over the weekend (Friday 26th to Sunday 28th February 2016) as the city hosted the third Oxford International Art Fair.

The three halls in the venue were packed with over 150 artists and galleries from some 26 countries around the world and the atmosphere was charged with energy as visitors took in the wide range of unique art available and took pieces they had purchased home to adorn a living or work space wall.

Artists and galleries reported bustling trade during the three day free art event, with many making multiple sales and receiving commissions on original paintings, sculptures, photography, prints and illustrations.

One of the exhibitors was Barry Davies a Sculptor from Wales and he said: "What an excellent exhibition!!! I have commissions for five bronze sculptures, a sixth in coldcast bronze a possible invitation by a gallery owner in Cheltenham, personal advice from Christies ex-chairman Richard Knight on marketing and promotion of my work and a lengthy discussion with a Director of a gallery in Berlin whose advice was priceless. I thank you for your professionalism and assistance throughout, and I look forward to exhibiting with you at Oxford in the future." 

Alce Harfield who exhibited at the Art Fair from the first edition through to the third said: "Great show this year, it gets better and better, and another sale today from the show!"

Lesley Debson from London said "My stand was in the beautiful main hall at the entrance, and we saw a steady stream of guests all weekend. I sold 7 artworks and had lots of interest, lovely visitors and good atmosphere."

Rupert Aker said: "A great show. I sold 11 paintings and had great conversations with guests and fellow artists alike. I was pleased that I made it to the networking evening as that was great fun. Looking forward to next year!" 

Organisers of the fair, Joëlle Dinnage and her business partner Natal Vallvé from the Global Art Agency added their appreciation to the city’s reaction to the event and the enthusiasm they found from artists and visitors alike.

“The third Oxford International Art Fair was a great success, with an amazing atmosphere and a real buzz throughout the weekend,” said Joëlle. “We are very happy with how it all went. The footfall was great, there was a genuine excitement across the halls and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

“Importantly, the artists and galleries had a successful show, selling works, making commissions and simply making connections, which is what the essence of the event is all about. We want to connect artists with people who appreciate art, whether they’re expert collectors or just starting out, and we’re happy to have made very good progress - I am expecting great after-sales for the exhibitors and hoping that connections made will turn into more success for them.

Visitors had the chance to vote for the most popular artist of the event, which was a very good initiative said Chris Smith an art collector from Stanton-Harcourt. "The art fair was very lively with live jazz music, and there was the opportunity to vote for best artist. I was there on Friday evening for the opening with champagne reception which was very well organised. On Sunday I attended the Global Art Awards Ceremony as I was interested to know the results, and I was impressed by the whole show around it. I will certainly visit again."

The Miami Art Expo 2015 Review

THE MIAMI ART EXPO BRINGS A WEALTH OF FINE ART TO SOUTH FLORIDA.

By: Vanessa Martinez – Staff Writer FIUSM

the-miami-art-expo-review

This summer’s Miami Art Expo was all about contemporary art.

The exhibition featured a week-long roster of artists ranging in a variety of art mediums from all over the globe. FIUSM got up-close and personal with some of the artists such as Daniela Valentini from Chile and Jeff Murray who flew all the way from London.

Valentini acquired her painting skill from her homeland at the University of Chile with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She specializes in bringing aesthetic qualities of realism to come to life in her artworks. Murray’s work reflects his lifestyle as a traveler of seven years through his pen and ink pieces. American artist Annika Banko has a display of pictorials which convey expressive colors and gestural methods as a response to nature and life as an artist. Her techniques involve the mastery of controlled spontaneity by using her body to create the works.

Between canvases engaging in brilliantly colorful detail to intricate abstract expressionism, there is so much to see at the event. The audience is one interested in the prestigious atmosphere of the fine art world. The various pieces emit the human emotions of the idealists behind the artistic exploration. Getting a glimpse from the minds of these talented individuals is sure to promote artistic exposure of the local Miami art scene today.
