The Urban Art Fair

As many of you may know, I’m intending to show my art work at Brixton’s Urban Art Fair this year. I’ve been meaning to blog this for ages, but the dates are rapidly approaching, so I thought it would be good to let you know. It’s on Sat. 18th & Sun 19th July on Josephine Avenue, halfway up Brixton Hill in London.

The Urban Art Fair is one of those amazingly eccentric London events that happens seemingly at random – a load of artists take over a street for a week, and hang their pictures for sale on the railings for people to come and look at and hopefully buy. It’s all arranged with the Lambeth Council of course, and all above board. Just have to hope that the weather holds out.

I’ve been every year for about 4 years, and always keep meaning to exhibit, but this is the first year I’ve got myself in gear, so it would be great to see you all. A great day out. I can recommend the “Negril” restaurant for lunch. If you want a sneaky preview of what I’ve been working on, then check out my blog.

Otherwise – See you there!

    It's also the same weekend as the Lambeth County Fair in Brockwell Park which is a mere 5 minutes away, so why not make a day out of it! I will be.

    Hi Everyone-

    Just got a message from the organisers. It's looking goo…!

    We look forward to seeing you at next weekend's Urban Art 2009, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July, 10am to 6pm, Josephine Avenue, Brixton, London SW2. Now London largest open air contemporary Art Fair.

    This year we have over a hundred artists exhibiting each day with over a thousand pieces of work on show including paintings, photography, mixed media and print.

    Our charity partner this year is Trinity Hospice and on Sunday 10% off all sales will be going to support their valuable work.

    JPart will be producing a live piece on our specially built 3 metre Graffiti wall and, new for this year, will be our 'sound stage' on Saturday afternoon… plus cake stall.

    As usual, we will have our tasty food areas including Christine's spicy Caribbean, Grant's hot Mexican and Snack Bar.

    The event kicks off with a Grand Opening by the Mayor of Lambeth Christopher Wellbelove, Chuka Umanna and new 'Loose Women' presenter Rachel Agnew at 10am on Saturday morning.

    With the promise of good weather, we predict a blistering weekend of fabulous art.

    All the best.
