Saltburn Arts Fair

The summer of 2012 will see the first major Arts fair in Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

The fair will be held over the weekend of 3rd, 4th, 5th August on the streets, in the galleries and in the community spaces around the town.

Saltburn’s very first curated Arts Fair aims to delight the crowds with a major show of work by International, National and Regional artists. Over 60 artists will be exhibiting everything from paintings to installation work to film and photography.

The organisers are also very excited to announce that internationally renowned artist Julian Germain will be taking part in the event. Julian will be speaking and working with artists over the course of the weekend as well as exhibiting work at the fair. In addition international curator and editor Cherie Frederico of Aesthetica Magazine has assisted the curatorial team.

The event will take place across four venues including a street art-fair on Sunday and is launching with a ticketed music gig on Friday evening at Saltburn Theatre. On Saturday mima will host a symposium, taking the theme of ‘People and society’. The symposium will bring together top named speakers from the arts world and will be followed an ‘evening social’ at Profile Gallery including an exhibition launch and live entertainment.

Saltburn-by-the-Sea and the immediate coastline has a long standing reputation as a melting pot for creative endeavour and the setting of a beautiful Victorian seaside resort will ensure a great weekend for all the family.
