This autumn Breeze Art and Makers Fair will bring an array of over 50 current artists together under the grandiose roof of 18th century manor, Trereife House, in Penzance, Cornwall.
Set over three days, the fair is a celebration of unique craft from a specially selected collection of artists from around the South West, and coincides with the release of Anya Rice and Katherine Sorrell’s new book Make: Cornwall, which profiles and celebrates 25 modern craftspeople in the area. Sorrell will curate a new exhibition of the same title to showcase a trendsetting selection of contemporary craftspeople from the county.
Claire Buckley will also curate a new exhibition, Textile Treasure, a hunt encouraging visitors in and around Trereife House to appreciate and admire textiles crafted over the years. Meanwhile, the Breeze education area will be thriving with 13 exhibitors showcasing from pottery to steel fabrication offering visitors an insight into the creation, construction and practice of these modern skills.
Breeze Art and Makers Fair supporting director Samme Charlesworth says, “We are thrilled to invite the artists, exhibitors and galleries back to the beautiful Trereife House this September. This year we have created an event that highlights the cultural importance of art and craft, and showcasing the skills, practice and knowledge that is needed to create such wonderful heritage crafts. Every year we endeavour to build upon previous shows successes and create both a visually exciting and deeply educational event for visitors and exhibitors. We have a whole new fascinating programme of workshops and talks that attendees can drop into on the day. Trereife House is a charming location and the specially curated exhibitions will have the guests wander through the house, ground and gardens, enthralled by the great art and craft.”
Breeze Art and Makers Fair will run at Trereife House from 13 – 15 September. Tickets can be booked here.
