REFRESH: MAKE ROOM FOR NEW ART
Fresh: is a fair for buying art but many of you may have a painting or sculpture you may wish to sell. Bring up to 3 artworks to Fresh: (only early 20th century work and earlier) and Bonhams experts will give you a free valuation. You’ll be able to consign suitable paintings to a forthcoming Bonhams auction, leaving room for you to buy new art at the Fair. In the spirit of the Antiques Road Show you may even discover you have a treasure.
Fresh: Start is our very own charity initiative to help homeless people find their way into work and somewhere they can call home. We will be raising money for St Mungo’s and P3, who do fantastic work for homeless people in Bristol, Bath, Gloucester, and the Cotswolds.
