Darren Dearden

Landmark Autumn Art Fair 14 – 15 October | Landmark Art Centre, Teddington

T

he Landmark Art Fair’s focus on showcasing individual artists, including recent graduates and new talent, gives visitors the opportunity to meet and buy directly from the artist rather than via a gallery, and has proven to be hugely popular with both visitors and artists alike. The Autumn Art Fair is the second to take place this year, housed in the magnificent surroundings of the Landmark Arts Centre, in Teddington, south-west London. Visitors will find a huge variety of fine art, with all mediums represented including painting, sculpture, graphics, print, illustration and mixed media plus high quality ceramics, jewellery and textiles, all within the unique setting of the Grade II* listed building. A particular highlight of the Autumn Art Fair will be the intricate work of Darren Dearden, who incorporates a playful humour into the everyday, expertly using found objects, animals and general

occurrences as subject matters; finding intrigue within the things we encounter in our daily lives. Speaking about the fair, Darren said; ‘Landmark for me is one of my favourite art events I attend, it has a great atmospheric venue, and excellent organisation with a fantastic footfall'. Visitors will get the chance to meet Darren along with all of the other artists showing work, giving them the opportunity to engage with the artists and art work, and to learn a little about the skills and ideas behind it. Buying exciting new artworks directly from the creator also avoids gallery commission charges, which is particularly good for new collectors. The Landmark Art Fairs are firmly established major events in the visual arts calendar, with the Autumn Art Fair taking place on the 14-15th October.
