“As we emerge from a locked down winter, the ACBF Flora & Fauna Edition will present an abundant celebration of the natural world through the eyes, brushstrokes, hands, lenses and visions of a dewdrop-bright line-up of artists. Expect a profusion of works from emerging shoots and re-sprouting hardy perennials (!), with floral delights, curious creatures, nature made strange and dark beings lurking in the bushes! The festival-style atmosphere of the Art Car Boot Fair will be channelled through a Programme of the Day and Live & Direct links into artists studios curated to feature engaging, spirited artist-led adventures and experiences plus a few surprises. Artworks and wares are produced exclusively for the Art Car Boot Fair. Art, Frivolity and Serious Bargains Guaranteed!”
And as one of the participating artists I would once again like to point out how artist-friendly the whole Art Car Boot Fair thing is. You see where most art fairs charge us artists an absolote fortune to participate and while most art fairs only consideration in terms of artist selection is who will pay their outragious fees, where msot art dairs see us a mere cash cows, the Art Car Boot Fair charges the participating artists not a single thing – no fees, no nonsence, no explotation, no extra charges to plug in and extra light or to blow your nose, no no no. The Art Car Boot Fair is a proper artist-led artist-friendly event, a carefully curated event and we artists all consider it a very big honour to be selected or invited. This is a proper art event and whatever the format, an Art Car Boot Fair, be it down Brick Lane or over in Kings Cross or in a car park in Liverpool or on the seafront at Folkestone or in a forest in Sussex or in this case on-line, wherever it happening, the Art Car Boot Fair is always a hilight of any art year.
Right now we artists are busy producing new exclusive pieces just for the fair, one-off paintings that will debut at the fair or special print runs and yes, special prices, it is truely in the spirit of an car boot fair it is still slightly anarchic, it is still very much in the spirit of that Fate Worse than Death back there and yes, okay, it isn’t quite the same as meeting at a physical fair, there good things
