Freya Mitton 20th Century British Art - Uffizi Gallery -  Julian Trevelyan 1910-1988

ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Now in its 53rd year, this premier event brings a diverse group of specialist dealers offering rare and unusual pieces for the home, with inspiration from across the centuries with both period and and Mid-Century pieces on show. 

The event has traditionally taken place in the domed Buxton Pavilion which is currently closed for refurbishment but the temporary home for this and other prestigious events is a purpose built marquee in the grounds of this historic building which has hosted society events for more than 100 years.  The Pavilion will be opened again in time for The Buxton Pavilion Antiques Fair dates in 2018.

This year, two exciting dealers join the line up enhancing the variation of styles at the fair. Modern British and contemporary art specialist Freya Mitton will be showing works by well-known artists Mary Feddon RA, Julian Trevelyan RA, Fred Cuming RA, Paul Maze and Ruskin Spear and  Not Wanted On Voyage, specialists in decorative and unusual Mid-Century Modern and collectors' objects. Among their collection will be Mid-Century side chairs decorated with pages from Playboy Magazine and medical trolleys refitted as mobile cocktail bars!

"We aim to offer a wide range of high quality, authenticated antiques and works of art from the past three hundred years," explains organiser Sue Ede who took over the fair nine years ago. "It’s a 4 day event where everything is vetted for quality so our visitors can expect to make purchases safe in the knowledge that they are buying genuine pieces, whether they cost £25 or £25,000."
