Parallax Art Fair

Parallax Art Fair

First London event

I am taking part in the seventh Parallax Art Fair in Chelsea Town Hall, King's Road, on 18th and 19th October. There will be about 200 established and emerging artists from all over the world, exhibiting 2,000 to 3,000 pieces. This is my first event in such a prestigious part of London, so both exciting and a bit scary! There is a private viewing on Thursday, 17th October from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. If you would like to come could you please RSVP by Friday 11th October 2013 to: [email protected]. If you are unable to make the private view, free weekend passes to the event can be booked at: Opening times are 1pm to 8pm on 18th October and 11am to 5pm on 19th October. And, there is also a chance to win a free flight to Miami.

It is DECEMBER, hope you catch this post. A MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all.

I'll get there one day but it's a long way from Western Australia...I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of those who were picked as it were in the Magazines when I get them

I have to say well done with all the organisation and in particular with the Competition. I have wanted to go to Patchings for years but from where we live it's a really awkward journey and would mean staying down there and finding dog sitters. I did however enjoy entering the competition. It's so encouraging for newcomers and so easy to enter without having to get professional prints done as in other competitions or initially framing and packing work. It really does encourage amateur artists in particular and is so simple to do. I was utterly thrilled to get a Highly Commended. One thing though that I've already written in about (and had a reply thank you) is that I and I'm sure many others find it really difficult to see what the judges have seen in some of the winners and I wish they would do a critique of each of the major prize winners. I understand there will be a piece in September's magazine by a judge explaining what he looks for which will be a great help. When you are just starting out it's a real puzzle to know whether it's subject matter, technique, being adventurous or sticking to tradition that catches the judges' eyes. We all understand how subjective art is and how so much must depend on the judges' personal preferences. For a first timer like me it's very puzzling. I entered two and really felt that the one that wasn't chosen was a far better painting.Oh to be a fly on the wall when the judges are discussing them. Anyway well done everyone on a great Exhibition.
