Off the Wall Art Fair - beautiful art to enjoy and buy at Bucks County Museum, opens 11 November

11 November – 9 December 2017

The Friends and Patrons of the Bucks County Museum are launching their ninth ‘Off the Wall’ art fair at Bucks County Museum in Aylesbury on 11 November.

A fantastic opportunity for some early Christmas shopping, visitors can buy unique and affordable works of art by both national and local Buckinghamshire artists. All the work on display will be for sale and can be taken away ‘off the wall’ on the day of purchase. Prices start at £30 and profits support the work of the Museum. The range of work on view is superb with paintings, photographs and prints mixed in with ceramics, jewellery and sculptures. 

30 artists are taking part including:

Hannah Firmin, a printmaker well known for illustrating the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency books by Alexander McCall Smith.  Hannah’s father worked on children’s TV classics such as The Clangers and Bagpuss and she herself studied under Quentin Blake at the Royal College of Art.

Laura Boswell, a printmaker based in Great Horwood, was one of only 6 artists in the world to be selected in 2009 to attend the Nagasawa Residency in Japan to learn woodblock printing under master carvers and printers.  Her prints can be found in national collections including the House of Lords and the National Library of Wales, as well as the large scale mural in Aylesbury town centre.

Chairman of the Friends, Kate Eckett, said, “With thirty artists displaying over a hundred works of art there is a huge range of paintings, prints, sculptures, ceramics and jewellery for buyers to choose from.  We are looking forward to the opening on 11 November when many of the artists will be present”.

Off the Wall Art Fair runs from 11 November – 9 December and is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm. Entry is by donation to support Buckinghamshire County Museum Trust, registered charity 1153345.

Launch event: we would be delighted if you were able to attend the opening on Saturday 11 November from 12 noon to 2pm when many artists will be present.
