Situated in the heart of picturesqe Sussex Downs at the world renowned Goodwood Racecourse, Sussex Art Fairs brings the art world to West Sussex for one weekend only, 15th to the 17th of May 2020.

The art fair is spread over two main halls, one for Galleries & Collectives and the other for Independent Artists, which provides the ultimate art fair experience for our visitors and budding art collectors.

The 3 day event starts with the Private View at 5pm on the Friday Evening where visitors will be able to browse for their favourite artworks with a glass of wine and be the first to view the exhibitors' collections before the event opens to the general public.

Weekend facilities include a downstairs bar in the Galleries Hall, a first floor bar and full café/restaurant serving tea’s, coffee’s and food throughout Saturday and Sunday. The venue is wheelchair accessible and small dogs are also welcome although we do ask that they be carried whilst inside the venue.

We are thrilled to be continuing our collaboration with Sussex Wildlife Trust, a conservation charity who cares about protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found in our Sussex towns, countryside and coast. Visitors can purchase original artworks kindly donated by our exhibitors, each work priced at £50 with all proceeds going to the charity.
 

Being the largest art fair within the Sussex Counties, Sussex Art Fairs is the perfect place to begin your art collection, or indeed add to your collection if you are already a seasoned art enthusiast. All exhibitor details will be available within both the limited edition brochure available at the event and online at our website

We look forward to welcoming you in May.

Bouke de Vries, Memory Vessel, 2016, ceramic and glass

Reflecting the resurgence of craft and skills-based making in art over the past decade, this one-day symposium explores common ground between contemporary art and studio ceramics. Emphasising the commonalities between artist and craftsperson, the event focuses on practical, theoretical, and professional aspects of working with clay, embodied in its malleability and resistance - its plasticity.

-          Mathew Leung (Assemble architecture collective)

-          Caroline Achaintre (Artist)

-          Florence Peake (Artist, Choreographer)

-          Bouke de Vries (Conservator, Artist)

-          Dr. David Stent (Visual Arts, West Dean College)

-          Julian Stair (Potter, Writer)

Panel Chairs:

-          Rosie Cooper (Head of Exhibitions DLWP)

-          Alison Sandeman (Studio Potter)

-          Katie Schwab (Artist)

The symposium will be a day of discussion, identifying common ground, appreciating difference, and celebrating clay as a material that feeds the imagination.
