Art lovers will be invited to see art in a different way with the launch of the UK’s first

major contemporary art fair in the Heart of England.

Fresh: Art Fair

, which launches its

first show at Cheltenham Racecourse, is a new national art fair on a mission to make

quality art more accessible to the regions, filling a gap currently under-served by other

art fairs.

Co-founded by Anthony Wardle, a former chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi subsidiaries,

Fresh:

will launch with 45 of the UK’s best contemporary galleries, many of which are

rarely seen on the UK art fair circuit. With some 5000 paintings and sculptures from

over 400 established and emerging artists there will be something to suit art lovers of

all tastes and budgets from established and aspiring collectors to complete newcomers

to the world of art.

On show will be work from internationally acclaimed and collected artists, Royal

Academicians and Royal West of England Academicians, and Members and Fellows of

The ROI, RSW, RBSA and RSA. They include Barbara Rae, Mary Fedden, Bridget Riley, Sir

Peter Blake, Peter Wileman, Sophie Ryder, Edward Noott and Alan Halliday. Among them

will be many rising stars and fresh new faces including Ukrainian-born oil painter Iryna

Yermalova, French sculptor Lou-Brice Léonard, English wildlife sculptor Adam Binder

and Spanish-born still-life artist Raquel Alvarez.

For the first time in the art fair world,

Fresh:

visitors will not only be able to buy art, but

also bring some of their old paintings that they might wish to sell. Experts from Fine Art

Auctioneers Bonhams will be on-site to provide free valuations. With some of the

excitement of The Antiques Road Show, visitors to

Fresh:

may find they have a treasure

in the attic.

relationship between mankind and nature and

through foraging, video, body printing,

work begins in the open air in the landscape

and is developed in the studio into large
