This autumn sees the launch of the Breeze Art & Makers Fair at West Cornwall’s beautiful Trereife House, an event which will showcase the very best designer-makers and artists in the region, with three days of exhibitions, workshops, talks and demonstrations. Previously known as the Cornwall Design Fair, Breeze will profile the finest luxury craftsmanship and contemporary art, presenting the work of over 45 selected artists and makers, including silversmiths Brett Payne and Fenella Watson, ceramicists Paul Jackson and Richard Phethean, sculptors Richard Holliday and James Eddy, jewellers Emily Nixon and William Blaikie and glass artists Antonia MacGregor and Helen Eastham, and exhibiting collections from twelve of the South West’s leading art galleries, including New Craftsman Gallery, White Space Art, Circle Contemporary, Yew Tree Gallery, Makers Emporium and Guild of Ten.
In addition, the elegant interior of Trereife House will be open to visitors as the backdrop for a special exhibition of contemporary glass. Entitled Glass Glamour and curated by artist Fiaz Elson, the exhibition will showcase the work of makers who specialise in creating bespoke cast or hand-blown pieces to commission, while outside, the parterre and long border of Trereife’s formal gardens will be the venue for Form and Formality, an exhibition of outdoor sculpture in wood, glass, metal, ceramic and stone, curated by Miranda Leonard.
Simply share any of Breeze’s posts using the hashtags #BeAtBreeze #BreezeFair18 on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for the chance to WIN FULL PRICE DAY TICKETS for yourself and three others. Competition ends midnight Monday 10 September.
