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. Experts from International Fine Art Auctioneers BONHAMS will be at the Fair. Bring a painting or two or a photograph of the work and Bonhams will give you a free valuation. Please bring only pre-contemporary work - early 20th century and earlier. You’ll be able to consign suitable paintings to a forthcoming Bonhams auction, leaving room for you to buy new art at the Fair. 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 P3 which does fantastic work for homeless people in Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Cotswolds.
