Good News at Hampstead!

It seems that my Hampstead and London paintings went down a treat at the Affordable Art Fair at Hampstead over the weekend, which is great news!

Apparently the damp weather didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the art buyers, leading to plenty of sales.  Hurrah!

And according to this article in the Telegraph, people in the 18 to 34 year bracket are turning to art as a form of investment, with nearly a third of those in this age bracket having purchased paintings, sculptures of photographs worth under £4000 apiece (the ceiling price for the Affordable Art Fairs) in the last 12 months.

The Fair has moved from its October/November slot of the last two years to this year's summer slot of June.  It was a bit of an unknown quantity, but it seems that this move has been to the benefit of the Fair, moving it away from clashing with the Affordable Art Fair at Battersea in October, and creating an event which is more in keeping with the numbers of summer visitors to the Heath.  The result has been an event going like...well, a fair!

It's going to be a June date for 2014, so put it in your diaries and see you all there!
