A long established event, The Beaconsfield Art Fair is held twice each year. Spring 2012 provides an opportunity to buy - or simply to view - many examples of fine art and crafts from renowned local artists.

Whether your interest is in paintings, sculpture or craft, or youre looking for a specific unique piece or just wish to browse, we are sure to have something to appeal to you. By buying at the Art Fair you will also be benefitting the local community all money raised will help fund exciting new projects at The Beaconsfield School.

There will be a diverse selection of paintings in many media, from contemporary pieces to more traditional work; watercolours, oils, encaustic wax, pen and ink, photography and more. Many of our artists sell very affordable prints and handmade cards too. There will also be a wide variety of ceramics, sculptures and pieces formed of glass and other materials.

Alongside the art will be many local craftspeople selling a broad selection of high quality, handmade and original work ranging from textiles and wood, to jewellery and pens, via dolls and hand bound books.

The winners of the Primary Art Competition will also be announced. The theme of this years competition is the Queens Diamond Jubilee and three local primary schools are taking part. Winning and commended entries will be exhibited for everyone to see.

On Friday evening many artists will also be in attendance; enjoy first choice of the art we have on offer whilst enjoying a free drink and nibbles and chatting to the creators of the items you see. On Saturday, homemade refreshments will be served throughout the day.

Admission to this event is still FREE, and once inside you will find prices for all pockets; starting from as little as a pound, going up to several hundred pounds for the more valuable pieces on sale.



The Beaconsfield Art Fair is organised and run by The Beaconsfield School PTFA.
