20/21 International Art Fair 2012 to offer accessible prices, quality and variety

LONDON.- The 20|21 International Art Fair will take place at the Royal College of Art in Kensington Gore, London SW7, from 16 to 19 February 2012. It will be opened by Jeffrey Archer at 12 noon on the 16th.

The fair features modern and contemporary art from the UK but has a significant number of dealers who specialise in work from China, India, Japan, Russia, Poland, Serbia and the Ukraine.

However, art from a whole host of other countries will also be on show including many European countries, South America and, this year a special exhibit from Australia. International names include Matisse, Miro, Picasso, Braque, Chagall (all works on paper), plus British 20th century favourites such as Henry Moore, David Hockney, Peter Blake and Damien Hirst, together with many emerging and less well known artists whose work will be there to be discovered and enjoyed. An added attraction is a display from the Royal College of Art Printmaking Department.

The fair is now in its sixth year and has carved out a special place in the arts calendar. Such was the demand for stands at the last fair the organisers were able to take more space at the Royal College bringing the number of stands to 60. This enlarged fair was very popular and it will now stay this size.

Included will be oils, original prints, watercolours, drawings, collage, some photography and sculpture ranging in period from 1900 to the present day. Prices range from a few hundred pounds to many thousands.

Visitor numbers to art fairs and major art exhibitions continue to hold up well showing that even in a difficult economic climate, people are still enjoying their culture. They may not be moving house but there is often room for another well-priced picture!

‘We were delighted with the 2011 fair,’ say the organisers, Gay Hutson and Angela Wynn who also run the successful 20/21 British Art Fair each September at the same venue. ‘Increasing the number of stands gave visitors a wider variety of art to enjoy but the fair still managed to retain its intimate ambience and friendly atmosphere which is what people say makes it so special.’
