Re. Exciting Times Ahead…..

Over the last 3 years we’ve really enjoyed organising the Art Fair and have been incredibly grateful for all the support and feedback we’ve received.  It has been a steep learning curve for us and, we really want to keep the Art Fair moving forward.

There is real potential for this Art Fair to build on its promising beginnings and establish itself as one of the top Scottish Borders events, capable of attracting a local and national audience to the area.  We know we need to raise our game, take on board the feedback, and put in a lot of hard work to take the Art Fair to the next level.

With this in mind the next Scottish Borders Art Fair will take place in March 2018.  We’re going to use the additional time to explore funding and sponsorship opportunities, formulate more effective marketing and advertising strategies, liaise with arts organisations, and raise our profile within the industry to attract interested parties from further afield.   Denise will be taking a back seat in the organisation, due to her own work commitments and poor health.  However, we are very excited that Frances Fergusson will be joining the team and helping to drive the event forward.  With over 15 years of event experience, and as a previous exhibitor trading as Artaholic, she is very well placed to take on the role and keep us on our toes!

Thank you again for your support so far, and we hope that you’ll be joining us going forward, to help create a sustainable event that we can all be proud of.  We will keep you updated with our progress, but in the meantime, please do let us know is you are interested in taking a stand in 2018, so that we can note your interest.

Have a great summer.
