Vane and Breeze Creatives invite Contemporary Art Society Members to join them for the launch of a new contemporary art fair at the Old Shire Hall, Durham on Friday August 29, 17.00 – 21.00. This is one of a series of events at the Old Shire Hall across August and September, including an art auction in September, which have been organised to help support the establishment of The Experimental Studio: a series of ten-week long artists’ residencies and an exhibition programme hosted by Vane.

Showcasing galleries from accross the North East region, the contemporary art fair will include presentations by several long-established Newcastle galleries, including Vane and Globe Gallery, more recent initiatives System Gallery, Praxis, and Breeze Creatives, and a significant presence from the burgeoning Middlesbrough arts scene, including the Platform A, Python Gallery and The House of Blah Blah.

The art fair continues, Saturday August 28, 12.00-18.00 and Sunday August 29, 12.00-17.00. During the fair there will be a programme of live work and other temporary presentations by artists.
