I displayed and sold my work at the Abington Park Museum Christmas Fair at the weekend (24th/25th November). It was really good to talk about my paintings and meet some new faces, and even make some sales!
For me it was about showing some of my smaller works and drawings, and engaging with fellow art lovers. However, what was really surprising was the amount of people who came along to the Christmas Fair. For example, over the two days nearly 3,500 people visited all adding to a bustling and lively atmosphere. The fair hosted a range of traders selling gifts, treats, festive foods and drinks including some nice craft beer! There was plenty here for everybody, and the set up throughout the museum on different levels worked really well.
Above all, my thoughts are that the level of support for this locally arranged event is particularly encouraging. May be there might be a case for a local art fair as well?
