The Big Art Show

Here are details for The Big Art Show. As you will see on my website the standard of work for The Big Art Show is very high and I am only after exceptional artists and crafts persons to exhibit.  (The Web site slowly  being updated over the next 2 weeks. you will find some updated information on it, including under Artists Information-- Call for Artists)
I just heard that Andrew Logan is going to be one of the patrons to the show.

Warm Regard
David Dawkins.

The 2nd Year
The Big Art Show 3rd, 4th 5th July 2015  at The West Midland, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
The Big Art Show  www.thebigartshow.co.uk will have some of the  best  art and craft artist in Britain, there will be over 150 exhibitors, including  glass, ceramicists, furniture designers, textile artists, sculptors, painters, metalworkers and jewelers. As well as over 100 film, photography and film artists. Also there will be artists giving demonstrations, workshops, and music playing though the day giving the show a relaxed atmosphere. The venue is on a 55 acre fenced show ground next to the River Severn, walking distance from Shrewsbury town centre. There is parking for 2000 cars.
This year's July Show was a success, with the prospect of  next year's show being more prosperous for sellers.
One of my  main objectives is to provide affordable selling spaces for high end craft designers and artists to sell their work.

Customer feed back from last show
"We thoroughly enjoyed the Big Art Show, despite the inclement weather, when we visited on the Saturday. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again next year, and bought a couple of items and are considering commissioning a piece by one of the sculptors there at the show for our new home when we move. We wish you lots of success and hope to visit again in the future
Kind regards
Julia Wiggins"
 
"Far better than we expected. Many exhibitors were of a very high standard and we bought a number of items. We have kept website and contact details for future reference.
We would be interested in attending next year.
Thanks, well done

"Comments: I thoroughly enjoyed the Big Arts Show on Sunday and gained inspiration from the wonderful artists displaying their astounding skills. The atmosphere was electric, the venue was spacious and comfortable and the artists where lovely to talk to.
I hope that this will be an annual event and would like to be considered for a place at the next one.
