Wimbledon Art Fair: 14-17 May 2020

Posted by Eyes of Lady Wimbledon | 15 May 2020 | Arts & Culture, What's On

Wimbledon Art Fair returns from the 14-17 May, showcasing the work of 100 of London’s most exciting artists and makers.

For the first time in 20 years, Wimbledon Art Fair will be taking place online instead of a physical fair due to Covid-19. The organisers are however excited about trying this new online format, they hope in fact many more people can view the work from all over the country and potentially further.

Georgia Kitty Harris’s ‘The Isolation Archive’ is a series of portraits based on world-wide submissions from the public including NHS nurses, which documents how’re all living apart together.

Wimbledon Art Fair will be showcasing work from over 100 different artists and makers and have a real diverse range of items on display, there really is something for everyone. This is also reflected in the price, they have items from under £50 to much larger scale pieces that are over £3,000.

Alongside the fair they have a special page on their website which is dedicated to work produced in response to the current climate in an exhibition called Art SOS. This includes works inspired by the NHS and the invisible disease, to work concerning how we are all coping in isolation, but you can also find humour in paintings of loo roll inspired by panic buying.

Sophie Tea’s work will depict Britain’s top panic buy item to stock-pile.

Wimbledon Art Fair are really hoping for a successful event for their artists as like everyone else it has been a tough time for them with all fairs and galleries shutting their doors. Therefore a decision to move online seemed like a necessary step, but also an exciting one. Although of course they are still sad they cannot physically invite everyone through their doors this time they do hope you enjoy looking at the talent that they house at the studios throughout the year.

Visit wimbledonartfair.com to shop affordable art from over 100 amazing artists and makers based at Wimbledon Art Studios. 5% of all sales will be donated to the St George’s Hospital Charity who are doing an incredible job supporting patients and families at St George’s Hospital, Tooting.
