ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Art and antiques depicting animals will be a highlight of the sixth annual fair, with this year’s theme being ‘The CADA Menagerie’.

Widely regarded as one of the leading quality antiques fairs outside of London, the CADA Fair is supported by Online Galleries and 1st Dibs, the leading online luxury marketplaces.  Considered a 'must visit' destination, it has cultivated a following of collectors, art consultants, interior designers and the public.

Historically, animals have played an important part of life in a domestic, social and agricultural aspect in art, from the earliest Stone Age cave drawings and mythical, symbolic beasts depicted in medieval manuscripts by Middle Ages artists, through to popular C17th hunting scenes, C18th works celebrating animals' natural beauty and majesty, and Victorian artists' sentimental pictures of their domestic pets and livestock. C20th artists explored the entire range of animal genres, as well as inventing some of their own.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

CADA welcomes new exhibitors including Jenna Scriven Fine Art, David Scriven (British pottery and porcelain specialist), and Mayflower Antiques (specialists in Baroque and Renaissance silver, glass, metalwork, boxes and furniture). Mary Cooke Antiques, Joanna Booth, Timothy Millett, Shaw Edwards and Cynthia Walmlsey, have also been invited this year for their expertise and valuable contribution.

With prices ranging from £100 to over £100,000, fine pieces from every discipline will be on sale, including furniture, pictures, silver, early needlework and antique boxes, sculpture, bronze, clocks and barometers, carpets and textiles, glass, jewellery, English and Oriental ceramics, garden ornaments and statuary, as well as other decorative items. 

The CADA fair is the only antiques fair to take place at Blenheim Palace (home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough) in the Colonnade, Orangery and Campaign Rooms, overlooking the Italian Gardens.  Patron of the Association and Fair, and CADA member, is Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, sister of the present Duke.

Catherine Hunt, Chairman of the CADA Fair 2017 says: ‘We’re very excited about this year’s Fair. The theme: The CADA Menagerie - an A-Z of animals in art - will appeal to all ages,  there will be affordable art on offer, all in a glorious setting which lends itself to a wonderful day out’.

This year, CADA’s chosen charity is the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT), based at Slimbridge in the Cotswolds.  Founded in 1946 by Sir Peter Scott, conservationist, ornithologist and artist, the WWT is instrumental in preserving wetlands and saving birds from extinction.
