The September issue of Cambridge Magazine has a fantastic 4 page spread about Cambridge Art Fair 2015, expertly written by Alice Ryan. Many thanks to lovely Lynne Strover for providing us with the location for the interview.
We are very pleased to announce that White Court Art will be participating in Cambridge Art Fair for the first time this year. White Court Art is based in Brecon, Wales, and specialises in original classic, modern and contemporary art.
They have a fantastic portfolio of artists, including Sax Berlin, arguably the finest exponent of 21st Century Classicism. Berlin has devoted his life to absorbing the culture of art and architecture in Europe, Asia & North America, thus becoming a genius of our time and the great secret of modern art. His contemporaries and collectors call him "The Master".
Make sure you visit White Court Art on Stand A9 in the large hall- close to the entrance of the Coffee Lounge & Wine Bar.

Every year at Cambridge Art Fair, Sheridan Russell Gallery takes over a sizeable section of the large hall and displays it's popular painting and sculpture portfolio to the eastern region. We are pleased that this year will be no exception as Richard and the team will be on the same three stands as usual.
With works by local sculptor Mel Fraser proving very popular and Lucianne Lassalle's emotional renderings of mythologically inspired sculpture, Sheridan Russell Gallery is a must-see display for everybody. The layered paintings by Jennifer Newman and eye catching sketches of Jamie Frost should not be missed either.
Sheridan Russell will be on Stands C3, C4 & D4 again this year.

Walton and Bovill Fine Art is a new gallery based in Long Melford from Stephen Walton and Giles Bovill. With over 20 years experience in the world of fine art, Stephen believes in helping people to buy art but never selling it.
Stephen has introduced and promoted works of art from established and new artists from around the globe. We will offer friendly advice and guidance to those wishing to enter the art market either as private or corporate buyers, whether as collectors, investors or just art lovers and enthusiasts.
Of equal importance in the daily life of the gallery, is the role of the individual artists who we will be working with. Inspired by John Maynard Keynes' words, we firmly believe "The Artist walks where the breath of the spirit blows him. He cannot be told his direction. He doesn't know it himself. But leads the rest of us into fresh pastures and teaches us to love and enjoy what we often begin by rejecting".
Giles’ professional career has been in a wholly different area. He has long appreciated fine art and often wished for an involvement in the art world. Since meeting Stephen over 15 years ago, Giles and his wife, Ali, have often sought Stephen’s advice when selling and acquiring works of art. A discussion between Giles and Stephen led to the creation of Walton and Bovill Fine Art, with Stephen being responsible for the day to day management of the gallery.
Walton & Bovill Fine Art will be found on Stand B3 in the large hall.

"We have a mission to create positive change in our community via training. Our courses change lives for the better by helping the unseen talented artists and craftspeople in our community achieve financial independence. We have lots of ideas of how to expand our work, and help our course graduates get their businesses off the ground too. Any funds raised from the sale of our goods and services are going towards reaching this goal, so we are pulling out all the stops to make sure it’s a success.
It’s been a tremendously busy first year for all of us at Gap Learning. In just a few months, we have turned our St Ives office into a crafty hub, and delivered Craftworks and Fullspoon courses to over 150 learners in the community. Not only that, we have also gathered together a bunch of talented, arty individuals who are helping to spread the Gap Learning ethos of creating beautiful art and connecting people"

"Calling all artists, amateur scribblers and budding creatives of all ages and abilities!
In conjunction with Cambridge Art Fair, we’re launching a competition to find our next cover artist. Here at Cambridge Edition, we love celebrating local people and local talent.
Cambridge is a hotbed of creative energy – and with such inspiring architecture and scenery on our doorstep, it’s easy to see why. We’re looking for someone who can capture what Cambridge means to them, whether that’s a favourite place or landmark, the ‘feel’ of the city or a culmination of lots of different impressions and ideas. This could be a painting, print, collage… anything. Surprise us!
The only limitation is the size of your canvas: we can only accept submissions scaled to 145mmx303mm (our cover dimensions). And if you can design something with a bit of space/sky at the top where we can lay the masthead (i.e the words ‘Cambridge Edition’) that would help us out a lot.
The deadline for entries is 15 September 2015. Please email us if you’d like more information:
firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced as part of Cambridge Art Fair.
:Cambridge Art Fair runs 2-4 October 2015 and pulls together the best bits of today’s art scene from the UK and around the world."
