Its seems so far removed from the sort of art event I’m used to attending, it does include a contemporary element though, I’m tempted to go and have a look.
CHESTER Antiques & Fine Art Show
15th to 18th February 2007
This “Show” has been running since 1988 and is widely regarded as the most prestigious event of its kind in the North-West, with 60 stands covering all 3 floors of the excellent modern County Grandstand, Chester Racecourse. The list of exhibitors is varied, high quality and from across Britain!
The Contemporary Art Gallery in the adjacent Leverhulme Building has 11 modern & contemporary specialists, offering paintings and sculptures – a refreshing change for those with less traditional tastes.
