Contemporary Art & Design Fair at the Candid Arts Trust





The Fair is now finished and and all the artworks have been put back in their boxes ready to be collected tomorrow and taken back to Bristol.

Sadly I did not sell anything but on the other hand a lot of people really appreciated the work but perhaps not the price. This weekend defiantly got me thinking about aspects to do with value, all I can do is learn from experiences.

Thank you everyone for coming and my wife for helping me.

Setting up for Islington Contemporary Art & Design Fair at the Candid Arts Trust, London







Today I started setting up my stand at the Contemporary Art & Design Fair at the Candid Arts Trust which is behind Angel Tube Station so its basically a minute walk. 

I took an early bus from Bristol and had my work delivered by a carrier. Most of the boxes arrived safely although I am still waiting for one more box to arrive, it should arrive tomorrow which is lucky as I still have another day to finish setting up.

Apart from that the space is ready the table is their. I had some time to test out the space with the work to get an idea of what kind of presentation I would like to go for.

From this experience I think I now realize how important it is to drive so I hope one day I could have my own van to transport my work.

Everyone is welcome to come and see my work at this event.

Dates are: main event 25-26 Oct 2014, 11:00am - 6:00pm. Please see the link (www.icadf.com) for more information. Looking forward to see you there.
