45 galleries: 400 artists: 5000 works
There are very few major art fairs outside London and none serving the many cities, towns and villages that lie in and around the Cotswolds.
Fresh: is a new art fair with new ideas. We’re an easy and exciting way to see forty-five of the best of Britain’s Galleries in one place, many of them rarely seen on the UK art fair circuit.
Fresh: is for everyone, from complete newcomers to enthusiasts and established collectors. We aim to make contemporary art more accessible in four important ways …We’ll help newcomers to understand what they see and how to buy. We’ll help enthusiasts to see beneath the surface, expand their horizons and venture into collecting. We'll bring exciting new talent to established collectors. We’ll show a very broad spectrum of art for all tastes and budgets with wonderful originals for as little as a few hundred pounds and internationally acclaimed work for a few thousand.
And, less than 10 minutes off the M5 with unlimited free parking, we’re really easy to get to.
Four good reasons to visit fresh:
Fresh: is for the art you love to live with ...and can’t live without. Fresh: Exhibitors will show work by award-winning artists with paintings and sculpture in public and private collections around the world. They'll also show work by exciting emerging artists beloved of collectors, who may go on to become the award-winners of the future.
For the first time in the art fair world, Fresh: visitors will not only be able to buy fabulous art but also bring some of their old paintings that they might wish to sell. Fresh: has partnered with International Fine Art Auctioneer Bonhams to provide free valuations on up to three works (early 20th century and earlier). You can make room for new art and you may even discover a treasure in the attic.
We're committed to making art accessible for everyone, so if you buy one ticket online we'll include a second ticket free. If you can make it on the Friday all tickets are free, and children are free every day. Parking is free, and there's no charge for professional wrapping of the art you buy.
Fresh: is less than 10 minutes off the M5 with 10,000 free parking spaces. There are 2 fabulous Fresh: Cafés. You can leave your car all day and take a shuttle into town ...make a day of it and visit Cheltenham's brilliant shops and restaurants, and then catch the shuttle back. You can make a weekend of it with hotel deals coming soon.
