The Contemporary Art Fair is returning to Windsor for another year. Taking place over the weekend of 9 to 11 November, the event will showcase over 160 artists in the unbeatable setting of the racecourse. Work on display will include pieces from both established favourites and emerging talent to create an eclectic exhibition that is a must for Berkshire art lovers.
A private viewings evening is set to take place on the Friday, offering visitors the first peek at this year’s offering.
