The Funky Art Gallery at Oxford Art Fair
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
The Oxford Art Fair was a great success! Visited by thousands of people over the weekend, the weather was great, kids were entertained by face painters and artists impulsively joined in getting creative.
A superb event that received a lot of press. Before the event organiser Joelle Dinnage did an interview for The Oxford Mail Newspaper and after the event the art fair was featured once more in the newspaper with a great picture of the students that took part. And also The Oxford Times featured the art fair with a wonderful picture of visitors admiring the work of artist Alex Zanda.
The art fair received many congratulations by the visitors on its success and also the artists enjoyed themselves to the fullest. One of the artists showing was the fabulous Julia Everett, who said this about the event: “I thoroughly enjoyed the Oxford Art Fair, I sold work and met lots of lovely artists that I will keep in touch with, it was so friendly and fun it felt more like a festival! It was extremely well promoted, Congratulations to the organisers for all their hard work and for looking after us so well.”
Kerry Clarke, visitor from Bicester said the following: “I had a great time visiting The Oxford Art Fair, amazing art, atmosphere & weather too. I am so happy with my art purchase ‘Birthday Gorilla’ from artist Phillip J Jones, it’s so cool I need to find somewhere to hang it. I will be visiting next event without a doubt.” In total The Oxford Art Fair received over thirty emails with fantastic feedback, some of these are listed here.
