Spring Fair 2007 report – Part 1

May 23, 2007 on 6:27 pm | In Art Industry | 2 Comments

Bit of a late one here but as I attended the Spring Fair in (4th – 8th February) I thought id mention something about it.

At last year’s 2006 fair, suppliers of glass, mount board and mouldings were doubtless pleased the demand for stretched canvas art had finally ‘peaked’ with frames and framing related art products having a much better look-in, and once again they featured heavily at this years Spring Fair 2007.

The stands of the major publishing houses were again displaying both framed limited edition art and also canvases but many of the prints and on canvas art had frames around them – time will tell how popular box canvas art (not requiring frames) stays.

I was also very impressed as usual with the Washington Green Fine Art and Demontfort Fine Art stands this year. I find it amazing that these things are actually exhibition stands and not real buildings – I stared in wonder at the stands for a moment before I looked at the Art work itself!

Although this point is open to some debate, ‘Male/ masculine’ art or shall we say art with colours and subject intended to appeal to a male target audience dominated the Art stands. Whole series of works had earthy brown tones and others had charcoal blacks and greys.

Ill post more on this shortly.

thank you

Russell
