The Friends and Patrons of Discover Bucks Museum are launching their eleventh ‘Off the Wall’ art fair at the Discover Bucks Museum in Aylesbury. All proceeds go to support the work of the Museum.
A fantastic opportunity for some early Christmas shopping, visitors can buy unique and affordable works of art by local Buckinghamshire artists. All the work on display will be for sale and can be taken away, ‘off the wall’ on the day. Prices start at £30 and profits support the work of the Museum. The range of work on view is superb with paintings, and prints mixed in with ceramics, jewellery and sculptures. The launch will be on Saturday 13 November from midday to 2pm with many of the artists present.
Chairperson of the Friends, Kate Eckett, said: ‘With twenty-eight artists displaying over a hundred works of art there is a huge range of paintings, prints, sculptures, ceramics and jewellery for buyers to choose from. We are looking forward to the opening on 13 November when many of the artists will be present.’
Off the Wall runs from 13 November to 4 December and is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm.
Meet the artists on 20 November 11am-3pm. A chance to meet some of the artists, discover more about their art and snap up a wonderful piece, perfect for a early Christmas present for yourself or a friend.
Admission is free.
