The Blackpool Art Fair is Grundy's biannual event that shines a spotlight onto some of the creative activity taking place across the Fylde coast, and a little further afield. They are attempting to create a small, vibrant community of creative in the gallery space; a place to cherish what might otherwise go unnoticed or undervalued.
As part of the fair, Grundy has invited Fylde residents and artists to exhibit one piece of their work in the gallery. I am honoured to be displaying one of my pieces in my home town as part of this wonderful fair. Blackpool has made me the artist i am today and The Grundy was the very first gallery i ever visited making this exhibition very special to me.
All the work displayed at the fair is for sale so if your looking for a one off piece you can take your pick of nearly 200 artists work.
Also happening on Saturday 19 November will be the Super Duper Fair, this year being held at Blackpool Winter Gardens and the switch on of Blackpool's christmas lights
