This week we’re talking about the UK’s only contemporary print fair, curated by Brocket Gallery London. The gallery have an exhibition space in Kennington which allows Brocket to host workshops, events whilst also acts as a platform for artists and an inviting space for clients and collectors but also curate events such as this huge contemporary print fair which going to be held in the industrial Building 17 at Cartridge Place in Woolwich.

There will be over 350 specialist artists and exhibitors showcasing their creations at the fair which opens on Thursday this week running until Sunday 25th November. The Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair is the only fair in London to deal solely in contemporary printmaking, and the largest of its kind in the UK bringing the very best prints to the rather huge former carriage factory at the Royal Arsenal.

This event celebrates every aspect of printmaking – from  screen printing, to etching and lithography and woodblock. There will be a selection of established practitioners such as Norman Ackroyd RA, Paula Rego and Chris Ofili along with emerging print makers and the freshest talent.

The curators from Brocket Gallery get to implement their ethos on encouraging people from all backgrounds to buy artwork – they offer art advise and consultation and have made sure to expand on this across the art fair;

“With an incredible range of prints for sale and exhibitors with an unsurpassed knowledge of their craft, interactive demonstrations and workshops, and a programme of talks and tours, offer visitors of all ages an insight into the practice of printmaking and what to look for when starting to build their own collection.”

We’re a creative bunch at Wylde IA and that extends much further than our interior design and architectural skills, we’re crochet knitters, mandala drawers, graffiti artists and landscape painters here at Dairy Studios so you bet we’re interested to see what this fair have to offer!
