Ever wanted to get your hands on a Hirst? Well, now’s your chance. The Bloomsbury Air Fair is back in London, showcasing blue chip artists and emerging contemporary talent, with all profits going to charity. Lawfully Chic readers have been offered ‘two for one’ tickets to attend – click here.
Now in its second year, the fair runs from 6 to 8 July at Goodenough College, Mecklenburgh Square, in Bloomsbury. It brings together a collection of painting and drawing, photography, print and sculpture, with exhibitors ranging from Banksy and Damien Hirst to contemporary artists such as Sophie Morgan and Clare Johnson.
All profits generated by the fair will help charities which support individuals who have suffered severe physical injuries, particularly spinal injuries. This year, the charities are Walking With The Wounded, the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust and Motivation.
The inaugural fair attracted over 3,000 visitors and raised over £60,000 for charity, and has now built on its success with the addition of an arts programme, which will include workshops for children as well as debates surrounding disability and the arts. The programme is funded by the Miss VL Clore Charitable Trust and run by ArtInsight.
All works are for sale and, for those who can’t make up their mind, re-entry is free on subsequent days so you can return any time to buy.
